Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan
Multi-Hazard Mitigation PlanThe Maui Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is a master plan for the County that identifies the hazards and risks posed by natural and technological disasters, identifies hazard mitigation actions and activities to reduce losses from such disasters, and establishes priorities and a long-term sustained process to implement those actions.

This plan focuses on mitigating hazards to critical facilities and special populations or areas.  Critical facilities include those public and private facilities that need to be operational during and after a hazard event to meet public health and safety needs, or to speed economic recovery. These facilities include the following:
  • Emergency response facilities: Civil Defense Emergency Operations Center (EOS), emergency shelters, police, fire and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) stations, hospitals, and Department of Public Works base yards.
  • Infrastructure lifeline facilities: transportation (harbors, airports, roads/bridges), energy (electrical, fuel, gas), communication (wired/cabled telecommunication, wireless), water, and wastewater.
  • Recovery facilities: debris clearing and disposal, car rentals, buses, financial institutions, survival and building supplies.
  • Secondary hazard facilities: facilities that increase the hazard risk if damaged, including wastewater facilities and hazardous waste sites.
 
Special areas that are more vulnerable and may require special assistance to prepare, evacuate, or recover include:
  • Hotels and resorts
  • Lower education facilities, day care centers, and nursing homes
  • Higher education facilities
  • Parks and shopping centers
  • Hazardous material sites
