  4. Mahalo to the Hawaiian Electric Companies for their support!
    Mahalo to the Hawaiian Electric Companies for their support!
    The Wai`anae Coast was recently recognized by NOAA as a StormReady and TsunamiReady community for our efforts, signs were erected at HECO’s Kahe Power Plant. We’d especially like to extend our heartfelt mahalo to Lori, Dominic, and crew for their assistance in installing these signs.
The Wai'anae Coast is a growing multicultural community located on the west side of the island of O'ahu.  Despite its beautiful beaches and mountain views, the Wai'anae Coast has had its fair share of devasting losses due to natural or man-made disasters.  The Wai'anae Coast Disaster Readiness Team (WCDRT) recognizes such challenges are likely to once again devastate Wai'anae residents and visitors.  

Are you ready?  Are you prepared to help your family, friends, and neighbors?  No one likes to think about disasters, until just before tragedy strikes.  The WCDRT was built to one day change that mindset throughout the community to ultimately prevent and limit the number of lives lost.

This site is primarily designed to inform the public about the WCDRT and provide a centralized location for residents to build awareness, keep up-to-date on current events, and be informed about upcoming training opportunities.
