  • There is one fire extinguisher outside on each floor of each building
  • Know the location of and how to use the fire hoses located throughout the property
  • Heat and smoke are more dangerous than flames
  • Stay low (if on second story, you may want to have drop ladder), get out, and call for help
  • Do not attempt to control the fire yourself

Wildfires:

  • Do not block the roads
  • Prepare fire hoses and stay alert if resort is in danger, following directions from firefighters
  • If firefighters say evacuate, evacuate immediately and take Survival Kit

 

HURRICANES

“WARNING” is the most dangerous and means the hurricane is about 24 hours away.

If you are here, cover the glass windows (with plywood, if possible) OR tape every 10-12 inches to prevent glass from flying if broken, especially on bottom floors

Fill bathtub, empty containers, waste baskets and garbage cans lined with plastic bags with water for use later if water supply is disrupted

Turn refrigerator up to high and do not open as it may be 3 days or more before electricity is restored (you may have 24 hours to prepare to evacuate and temperature will be at its coldest)

Evacuate to Molokai High School after unit is locked and secured, unplugging appliances and turning water off.

Take Survival Kit with you (see below) with three days of food, energy bars, etc

 

TSUNAMI*

“WARNING” is the most dangerous level.

Head to Maunaloa School
