Public Emergency Shelters

Displays public emergency shelter locations for the State of Hawaiʻi. During an emergency or threat of disaster, Civil Defense information will be broadcast over local radio and TV stations. When an evacuation is necessary these broadcasts may include information about the location of Public Emergency Shelters in affected areas. More information, including the location of shelters designated for people with special health needs and facilities for household pets may be broadcast, as well as when volunteers will be available to open shelters and direct evacuees to the appropriate areas. Since public shelters do not stock supplies, please bring provisions from your emergency supply kit at home. You will need at least two days worth of food, water, and personal items for yourself, family members, and household pets.
