Hawaii Emergency Management
Show Notes
The State of Hawaii has a unique geographical location among all states—an island state! This podcast is an interview with Luke Meyers, the Emergency Management Director for the state of Hawaii. We discuss the hazards the state faces and also their jurisdictional arrangement with a total of four counties. There is a brief discussion of the botched “the missiles are coming” warning along with other topics of interest. Think about the impact to their economy when COVID-19 stopped the influx of 35-40K tourists coming to the state. At one point they had only 150 arrivals in one day. Supply chain dependencies and being reliant on shipping for all your goods is another dynamic they have to deal with.
