MAYOR ROTH PROCLAIMS MAY 2024 A WILDFIRE COMMUNITY PREPAREDNESS MONTH

 

Mayor Mitch Roth has officially proclaimed May 2024 as Wildfire Community Preparedness Month in Hawai‘i County. This month-long initiative aims to raise awareness, educate the public, and encourage proactive measures to reduce the risk and impact of wildfires across the county.

 

“Preparedness is something that we can all do for free that will keep our homes, families, and communities safe in the event of a wildfire,” said Mayor Mitch Roth. “We’ve seen how quickly fires can spread, especially with increasingly dry conditions. By doing our part and taking the necessary precautions in and around our homes, we can significantly reduce the spread of wildfires.”

 

The County of Hawai‘i urges all residents to participate in wild fire preparedness by educating themselves on fire protection resources, and learning about the Ready-Set-Go! fire preparedness framework offered by the Hawaiʻi Wildfire Management Organization. These efforts will help reduce deaths, injuries, and property losses, making a significant difference before, during, and after a wildfire.

 

Mayor Roth added, “we encourage everyone in our community to take this opportunity to learn, prepare, and act. Together, we can make Hawai‘i County a safer place for all.”
