Civil Beat hosts a panel discussion with local experts to discuss the threat of wildfires in state of Hawaii.

Join Civil Beat’s fire panel to learn more about how and why wildfires have taken hold of Hawaii’s landscape – and how to prevent the worst-case scenario where you live. In light of the Aug. 8 fires that swept across Maui, including the tragic events in Lahaina, Civil Beat reporter Thomas Heaton will be joined by three panelists who have been dealing with wildfire for years. They will share tips, tools and understanding accumulated over their collective decades working in academics, in the community and on the frontline.

Featured Panelists:

Clay Trauernicht – Ecosystems and Fire Specialist at The University of Hawaii at Manoa

Elizabeth Pickett – Co-Executive Director at The Hawaii Wildfire Management Organization

Shermaih “Bulla” Iaea – Owner at Makaha Aqua Farms and Retired Firefighter for City and County of Honolulu
