The Hawaii Department of Health (DOH), in conjunction with Hawaii Healthcare Emergency Management (HHEM) and the Kauai Emergency Operations Center (EOC), deployed a medical team to Haena Kauai to provide basic medical care and assessments in the surrounding communities, which have been cut off by landslides following heavy rain and flooding earlier last week. This medical team includes Chris Crabtree, Director of Hawaii Healthcare Emergency Management.

Therefore, this webinar is cancelled and will be postponed to a later date. Please check our weekly Friday Update OR our website for the new date/time.
