HEMA prepares for possible disasters
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.
