Also new to 2018 - Don "Rock" Arakaki has tirelessly served as the Chair of the WCDRT since its inception in 2014.  Under his leadership we've continued to host monthly workshops offering informational presentations and training to the community; established the framework of our Emergency Operations Plan; conducted presentations and held booths at local events; built partnerships and gained recognitions from local, state, federal, and private organizations throughout the emergency management community.

As of January 10, 2018, Rock has chosen to step-down as Chair and appointed C. Pono Higa to take on the new leadership role.  Mahalo Rock for your service to this country, state, and Waianae Coast community.  We look forward to your continued support in our resiliency efforts.
