Maui Red Cross volunteers responded to a police incident reported in Kihei on Monday. Red Cross volunteers met with the residents of the Villas at Kenolio apartment complex on Halili Lane who were evacuated due to the incident to ensure their immediate emergency needs were met and also opened a shelter at Kihei Community Center for those who were displaced due to the evacuation.
The Red Cross encourages all families to make a disaster plan to include an evacuation plan with two different routes of escape, a communications plan to help families reconnect after disaster and a disaster supplies kit that is readily available to aid in a quick evacuation. Information on developing a family plan is available to the public at www.redcross.org, or a brochure can be requested by calling 734-2101 or your local Red Cross office.
