Welcome to Kailua Alert & Prepared!

Kailua Alert & Prepared (KAP) was formed by members of the Kailua Neighborhood Board and Kailua Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in 2015. As active residents of Kailua, we desire to help our community prepare for, respond to, and recover from all-hazard events, such as natural disasters (tsunamis or hurricanes) and man-made disasters (terrorism).

We were motivated to take action after witnessing the destruction resulting from the March 2011, Tohoku, Japan earthquake and tsunami. We believe in a whole-community approach, recognizing that preparedness is a shared responsibility involving individuals, families, faith-based and community groups, businesses, nonprofits, schools, media, and of course government.
