Each year, about 0.5% of Hawaii’s total land area burns each year, equal to or greater than the proportion burned of any other US state. Over 98% of wildfires are human caused.
In Hawaiʻi, wildland fire season is all year long. To reduce the risks, the Honolulu Fire Department urges you to properly store flammable materials and more!
The “Ready, Set, Go!” Hawaii Action Guide is designed to inform and empower our communities to prevent, prepare, and plan for a wildland fire incident.
In Hawaiʻi, wildland fire season is all year long due to our consistently, warm climate. But you can make a difference! Protect your home by reducing fuels and the possibility of ignition. Maintain your yard and clean out your gutters and clutter regularly.
When you first see smoke, don’t stall, call 911 and let us know as soon as possible. The earlier we can get to a fire, the better chance we can prevent it from spreading.
