HEMA pre­pares for pos­si­ble dis­as­ters

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - VIEWS & VOICES -

In re­sponse to Kevin M. Roddy (“Nu­clear siren alerts fool­ish idea for isles,” Star-Ad­ver­tiser, Let­ters, Dec. 1) and Phil Lahne (“Fo­cus on roads and hous­ing, not sirens,” Star-Ad­ver­tiser, Let­ters, Dec. 1), the Hawaii Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency re­mains com­mit­ted to help­ing our res­i­dents and vis­i­tors pre­pare for, sur­vive and re­cover from fore­see­able dis­as­ters, in­clud­ing a po­ten­tial nu­clear at­tack.

Pro­vid­ing the pub­lic with ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion based on ex­ist­ing sci­ence helps ev­ery­one make the best decisions pos­si­ble for their own safety and sur­vival.

In short, good in­for­ma­tion leads to bet­ter decisions, and we will not shirk our duty to serve the pub­lic be­cause it makes them think about un­pleas­ant things.
