A new interagency working group, “dedicated to addressing and preparing for fire issues following recent fires on Hawai'i Island and the extensive devastation on Maui”, has been created on the Big Island. Mayor Mitch Roth on Friday announced the establishment of the Hawai'i Fire and Emergency Response Collaborative. The new group “will convene key regional agencies, experts, and stakeholders to formulate strategies, facilitate resource-sharing, and streamline communication to enhance responses to wildfires and other emergencies”, a County news release says. The group will include representatives “from various Federal, State, and County departments and organizations such as the American Red Cross, Hawai'i Wildfire Management, Firewise, and community stakeholders.”
