Aloha Wailea Fairway Villas Ohana,

Many of us experienced a very real and frightening event with the brush fire this past January, 2019. In talking with several of you throughout our community, I heard totally polar stories as to how “things went” that night.  Some were great, some had no idea there was even a fire!  This was very concerning to me. We need to have an emergency plan as individuals, as buildings, and as a community.

I am presenting the first part of this plan, and providing you with some emergency information to have. There will be more information passed along as we move through this together. But, for starters, I am providing a checklist for a Basic Disaster Supply Kit, some emergency numbers, and resources.  I will also provide an additional checklist for a “GO” bag. What is a “GO” bag?   It is bag that you have, or can have put together within 5 minutes, in case of emergency evacuation.

Please take a few minutes to review this information and ensure that you have what is needed in case of an emergency.

Mahalo,

Kristi Dunning

Director, Wailea Fairway Villas Board of Directors


Here’s What to Keep at Home in an Emergency Basic Disaster Supply Kit

Every home should have an emergency supply kit located in an accessible storage area. It’s best if you store the items in plastic containers that are easy to grab and carry. Kits should be checked every six months, and expired items should be replaced to keep the kit up to date.  Emergency kits are meant to help you survive not only during an emergency, but also during the aftermath.

Home emergency supply kits should include:

  • One gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, seven days worth is ideal.
  • Enough nonperishable food for at least seven days and a can opener; keep protein packed foods you can cook without electricity, such as tuna, peanut butter and granola bars, and don’t forget about food for your pets.
  • Hand-crank or battery-powered radio with extra batteries to stay up to date on the latest weather alerts.
  • Flashlight with extra batteries.
  • First aid kit with gauze, tape, bandages, antibiotic ointment, non-prescription medication, a blanket, non-latex gloves, scissors, hydrocortisone, thermometer, tweezers and instant cold compress.
  • Tool kit with basic tools, in case you need to shut off utilities. A needle and thread.
  • Hand sanitizer and garbage bags for sanitation. Roll of toilet paper and paper towels.
  • Plastic sheeting and duct tape in case of broken windows or a leaky roof.
  • Inflatable camp mattresses and blankets/sleeping bag. The emergency shelters on Maui will not provide cots/bedding; just shelter.
  • Animal crate/carrier.
  • Whistle to signal for help so rescuers can locate you.
  • Family Documents-photo ID’s, insurance policies, wills, etc. all in plastic bag.
  • Special Needs: Hearing Aids, eye glasses, dentures, baby supplies

 


“GO” Bag

A “GO” Bag is separate from above, but is just as important. In it should be the things you need to have and can put in a designated bag within 5 minutes to leave the house. You need to ask yourself: is there anything in this house I cannot live without? That goes into the “GO” bag!

  • Clothing for three days, shoes, socks, underwear, toiletries/hygiene items
  • Prescription medications, insulin, blood pressure medications, etc.
  • Important documents, irreplaceable items (it may be a laptop)!
  • Pet crates, food, medications, and of course, PETS!
