Learn about how Hawai’i Volcanoes Observatory tracks volcanic activity, how Pacific Tsunami Warning Center tracks tsunamis, how National Weather Service monitors tropical cyclones, and much more.
Learn how to create an evacuation kit, build your own family plan catered to your needs, and enhance the resilience in your community. Along with all the valuable information, the public can also participate in giveaways, keiki ID services, enjoy delicious food and meet their emergency management professionals face to face.

Don’t miss your opportunity to increase your preparedness to all hazards Hawai’i faces.
