We're thrilled to share highlights from the recent Wildfire Prevention & Resilience Fair held on September 9, 2023, at Mānā Christian ʻOhana's Kahilu Town Hall in Waimea. This impactful event was part of the ongoing efforts of the Waimea Resilience Hub, a member of the Vibrant Hawaiʻi Resilience Hub network. Through the Resilience-funding provided by Vibrant Hawaiʻi, the Waimea Resilience Hub was able to bring this pivotal event to fruition. Attendees were greeted by numerous tables centered on wildfire preparedness, prevention, and resilience. These displays offered a hands-on learning experience, emphasizing the need for readiness in light of the recent, devastating wildfires, including the tragic Lāhainā incident. Moreover, the fair highlighted the tireless efforts of the Hawaiʻi Wildfire Management Organization (HWMO), a partner that continues to offer invaluable resources and insights to our communities. Mahalo nui loa to Waimea Resilience Hub and everyone involved for making this event a success. Through collective effort and shared commitment, we strive to create a resilient and Vibrant Hawaiʻi for all.
