COMMUNITY WILDFIRE PROTECTION PLANNING
Community Wildfire Protection Planning Meeting will be held for
North Kona communities.
Hawaii Wildfire Management Organization will hold community input meetings for the North Kona Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) at the following locations:
Tuesday, January 27th, 6:00 – 7:00 pm at the Pu'uanahuluCommunity Center (Mamalahoa Hwy.)
Thursday, January 29th, 3:00-4:00 pm at the West Hawaii Civic Center Council Chambers
(74 Ane Keohokalole Highway, Building A)
Thursday, January 29th, 6:00-7:00 pm at the Kealakehe Intermediate School
(74-5062 Onipaa St., Kona 96740)
Community input is critical to the CWPP process in determining priority wildfire concerns, needs, and action steps to better prepare and protect fire-prone areas from wildfires. The CWPP meeting will identify and prioritize projects to reduce the threat of wildfire to North Kona area communities.
North Kona is a federally listed community-at-risk. Wildfires have great impacts on North Kona residents and all Hawaii Island natural resources, affecting:
• Daily life (road closures, traffic, evacuations, tax payer dollars)
• Human health and safety (dust, smoke, water quality, burned homes and structures, resident and firefighter safety)
• Ecosystem health and resilience (watersheds, forests, coral reefs, fisheries)
CWPPs are a collaborative effort with input from community members, firefighting agencies, and related organizations. These plans are becoming increasingly important in Hawaii. They bring wildfire hazard information and planning/action opportunities to all who are affected, making it possible to address wildfire more effectively. As drought episodes increase and land uses continue to change, working at all levels to mitigate wildfire has become essential.
The CWPP project is made possible through support provided by the Cooperative Fire Program of the U.S. Forest Service, Department of Agriculture, Pacific Southwest Region.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING SCHEDULED
The next scheduled Board of Directors' Meeting will be held on February 11, 2015, at 3:00 p.m. The meeting will take place at Pacifica Realty Management, Inc. 75-1029 Henry Street, #202 Kailua Kona, HI 96740
