Big Island Eruptions are a Reminder for Emergency Preparedness

The recent eruptions and seismic activity on the Big Island and the possibility for a local tsunami, are a current reminder for Maui County residents to be prepared for emergencies and disasters.

Maui County officials issued a community message on Friday morning reminding residents to be informed about local hazards that could affect your home.  Among the suggestions are making a plan with your household including communications and evacuations, build an evacuation kit for each member of your family with food, water and essential supplies for three to five days.

For sheltering in place, officials suggest having 14 days of food, water and essential supplies at home.

The public can sign-up for Maka’ala – Maui County’s Emergency Alerts here.
