Upcountry residents can learn about the potential for upcountry Maui to become much safer and healthier at the Kula Community Association 7pm meeting on Wednesday, February 18 at the Kula Community Center. Beginning at 6:30pm the usual great refreshments will be available.
Our new Maui County Police Chief Tivoli Faaumu, a 29 year police veteran, will address ways in which his department can better communicate with the public and how to reduce the level of fear in the community. Chief will address traffic issues, bike safety, and police presence in the upcountry areas.
Dr. Nicole Apoliona, Medical Director, Kula Hospital and Clinic, will share the latest legislative efforts to authorize Kula Hospital and Maui Memorial Medical Center to enter into an agreement with a private entity to transition its facilities and operations into a new private, non-profit Hawaii entity.
Charnan Carroll, Program Manager, Community Emergency Preparedness (CERT) Team, will speak on how to prepare ourselves and family members to best respond to emergency situations. CERT training prepares everyone to stay calm and useful in a natural disaster, to be helpful to your family and neighbors. CERT training is fun and interesting as residents learn how fire, police, first aid, radio communications and weather reports work to keep us safe.
