Hawai‘i Emergency Management Agency:

HI-EMA Reminds Residents to Prepare for Hurricane Season

While most people are focused on the COVID-19 pandemic, HI-EMA wants to remind residents to also begin thinking about hurricane season – and to begin preparations now. The National Weather Service is predicting about 2-6 tropical cyclones this year. HI-EMA Administrator Luke Meyers said, “From an emergency management perspective, these look like good odds… but all it takes is just one storm to bring disaster to our islands.” Governor David Ige added, “Hurricane season brings the very real threat of high winds, rain, storm surge, potential flooding, and landslides to the Hawaiian Islands. And especially with this unprecedented incident caused by COVID-19, there could be significant impacts even if a hurricane doesn’t hit us directly. I urge Hawai'i’s residents and businesses to prepare now. Make an emergency plan, talk about it with your families and employees, and gather supplies to ensure that our communities are resilient.”

 

HI-EMA encourages everyone to prepare an emergency kit, which consists of a minimum 14-day supply of food, water, and other supplies … along with new additions this year such as hand sanitizer and face masks. Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. For additional tips on keeping your family safe:

Department of Public Safety:

Dry Fog Sanitation Implemented in Correctional Facilities to Prevent Spread of COVID-19

PSD is diligently working on prevention and mitigation efforts of COVID-19 in correctional facilities statewide by increasing the sanitation and disinfecting of common “hot spot” areas. PSD’s Hawai‘i Correctional Industries (HCI) recently partnered with Hawai‘i Unified (Hui Restoration) which holds proprietary rights for a patented dry fog sanitation system. The dry fog creates an antimicrobial barrier that continues to kill pathogens such as mold, bacteria, and viruses, including COVID-19, for up to 90 days. The sanitation solution out-performs other disinfectant routines, is non-toxic, is EPA and FDA approved, and does not damage electronic mechanisms. This dry fog method was applied in high traffic areas at the Maui Community Correctional Center, O‘ahu Community Correctional Center, and the Halawa Correctional Facility, including inmate intake areas and inside inmate transport vehicles. PSD is in the process of scheduling applications at other facilities statewide. Ryno Irwin, CEO of Hawai‘i Unified Industries, LLC said, “We’re just excited to be able to work with the community and help all of our first responders and our correctional systems stay safe from any contagions that could spread. The fog application settles on surfaces and it’s like a microscopic bed of spikes.  f any cells, viruses, mold, or bacteria lands on those surfaces it will pop the cell killing it on contact. This is an approved process, is completely non-toxic and is safe for people and animals.”

  

HCI is offering this service to all county, state and federal government agencies and will then eventually open services to the public. Video below:

DHS Commemorates 100 Years of Vocational Rehabilitation Services

June 2020 marks 100 years of Vocational Rehabilitation services in the U.S., and the Hawai’i Department of Human Services is paying tribute to this historical month with a resolute commitment to continue to change the lives of individuals with disabilities through its Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVR) programs. President Woodrow Wilson signed the Smith-Fess Act of 1920, also known as the Industrial Rehabilitation Act and referred to as "The National Civilian Vocational Rehabilitation Act," into law in June 1920. Maureen Bates, DVR administrator shares, “As we look back and celebrate 100 years of Vocational Rehabilitation services in the America, we stand together with our community partners to strengthen opportunities for the individuals we serve with disabilities, to obtain competitive integrated employment in Hawaiʻi's workforce. Now more than ever, amidst this unprecedented economic crisis from the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic, it is truly vital to further the vision of Department of Human Services, to help the people of Hawaiʻi to thrive.” On June 2, RSA showcased Vocational Rehabilitation success stories on a nation-wide webinar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB2MAHq5hxY&feature=youtu.be
