Aloha from Ron Mizutani, President and CEO…
ISR Oahu, Fujikami Florist, Civil Air Patrol
Wednesday, August 30 at 7:30 pm
On the next Home is Here, Infant Swim Rescue or ISR differs from traditional swim lessons in many ways, however the end goal is the same – to make sure kids know what to do if they are in the water alone. The Hawaiʻi Wing of the Civil Air Patrol was started in 1946. It is laying the groundwork for what may be our next generation of pilots. Founded in 1919, family-run business Fujikami Florist in Downtown Honolulu has helped many island families celebrate, remember and express their feelings through flowers.

Emergency management experts say to be prepared we should have a two-week supply of food and water on hand, a battery operated radio and several other safety related items. Good advice? How many of us follow it? We discuss this in the next KĀKOU: HAWAIʻI’S TOWN HALL: Are We Really Ready for a Natural Disaster? (Wed., Thurs. 31, 7:30 pm)
PACIFIC HEARTBEAT: Hawaiʻi’s Precious Resources (Sat., Sept. 2, 8:00 pm) is a collection of three short films exploring the delicate balance in Hawaiʻi’s ecosystem. They encourage us to reflect on our relationship with the natural world and show that even the smallest species are worth saving.

Final Thought…
Not since Hurricane Iniki slammed into Kauai in 1992, have we seen the magnitude of destruction and devastation left behind by the recent deadly wildfires on Maui. The old whaling town of Lahaina will never be the same nor will life for hundreds of Valley Isle families.
As beautiful as our Hawaiʻi is, we all understand, a natural disaster can happen at any time. The threat of a tsunami, an earthquake, a category five hurricane and a massive wildfire fueled by gusting trade winds, is always a threat. How prepared are we?
Join us on Thursday at 7:30 pm for KĀKOU: Hawaiʻi’s Town Hall: “Are We Really Ready for a Natural Disaster?” We welcome you to be a part of the conversation because this one affects all of us.

Mahalo nui,
