Rapid Response Investigating Maui Wildfires Cleanup Project

CAM Rapid Response staff members are evaluating a potential cleanup project on Maui, Hawaii’s second-largest island. Residents of Maui are reeling from what is considered the deadliest US wildfire in more than 100 years. Since the blaze began on August 8, thousands have been displaced, and more than 100 have been declared dead. More than 2,000 structures are damaged or destroyed. In the wake of this disaster, a Rapid Response cleanup effort is being evaluated. A delegation plans to visit the affected areas next week to investigate needs, connect with local officials, and research the logistics of a potential Rapid Response cleanup effort. They desire our prayers for wisdom, good connections with local and state officials, and safety as they travel and conduct research.
