Get Involved

An emergency can strike our community, our home, and our family unexpectedly, without warning. Do you know what to do? Does your family know how to contact you? Do you have a plan to connect and meet up with your loved ones?


Fortunately, residents of Hawai‘i have an opportunity to join in an effort to use our powerful resource of community before encountering an emergency—helping ourselves, our families, our neighbors, and our community prepare, and making Hawai‘i ready.

Local agencies across Hawai‘i are teaming up to share information and encourage residents to prepare for catastrophic events with a statewide campaign, Get Ready Hawai‘i.

You will find information on  how to build an emergency kit and develop a family emergency plan, including how to contact family members and how to meet up after an emergency. Participate by being prepared yourself and by being an advocate for family emergency preparedness.
