Are you familiar with Firewise? KCA has been talking about it since 2009.  SEE  https://gokihei.org/meeting-recap/recap-of-july-21st-community-meeting


Recap of July 21st Community Meeting

But now with the recent tragic wildfire storm on our island, community interest has become focused on mitigation and prevention and that is what Firewise is all about.  SEE  https://www.nfpa.org/Public-Education/Fire-causes-and-risks/Wildfire/Firewise-USA   Do you want to make your community, your neighborhood a Firewise community? Are you ready to get involved?

Organize it

Create a board or committee of volunteers to represent your community, including residents and partners such as local forestry agencies or the fire department. Identify a resident leader who will be the program point of contact. The board or committee defines the boundaries of the site and determines the number of individual single family dwelling units.
Community size: Minimum of 8 dwelling units and a maximum of 2,500.  Multiple Firewise USA sites can be located within a city/town or master-planned community/HOA. 
Do you want to protect your neighborhood, your home, your LIFE?  It takes proactive moves. As great as they are, can you wait for our firefighters to react to a fire? There are things YOU can do to prevent the fire from starting in the first place. NOW is the time to start.

KCA is seeking volunteer leaders from the community to create Firewise communities to help prevent South Maui from suffering the type of disaster that hit Lahaina.  Please step up and help Kihei take this important step.

If you are ready to be a part of a Firewise community contact us at kihei@gokihei.org this week, by Oct 9.
