Presentations, workshops, and trainings will follow tracts related to wildfire hazard reduction in and around communities, as well toward natural and cultural resource protection from summit to sea. The Hawaii Wildfire Summit is designed to bring together a diverse audience to become apprised of best practices and innovations in wildfire protection, discuss lessons learned, and to provide a space that invites collaboration and coordination toward next steps in Hawaii and the Pacific.

Over the years, HWMO has come to understand that wildfire-related challenges are faced by a wide array of professionals and citizens, including more than just those focused on emergency response. While the summit program is informative and highly valuable for fire professionals, the offerings are also targeted toward other efforts and people that deal with wildfire, such as riparian and marine conservation, cultural resource protection, the visitor industry, planning professionals, and community groups.
