While it is clear that we almost lost Lahaina Town to fires originating at Olowalu several times, we were fortunate this past December because the wind was blowing in a direction away from town while it spread over 2000 acres and stayed mostly in the mountain area above us. We may not be so lucky next time and hurricane season is rapidly approaching to potentially complicate matters.
It's also clear that the property owners residing within 5 miles of our Olowalu Fire Station have the very most to gain from this added safety facility with lowering of insurance premiums; currently at the very highest at Fire Protection Class 10. (FPC10). We have learned from the Hawaii Insurance Rating Bureau that up to 50% reduction in Property Insurance Risk and premium protection costs will occur once the Olowalu Fire Station is in operation for 6 months with a new FPC5 rating! That literally means that the 600 homes in the area can save thousands of dollars in reduced insurance premiums annually. That’s what happened in Napili and Kahana and Kapalua and will be enjoyed by Launiopoko, Makila Ukumehame, and Olowalu property owners.
Please help us help you. We are hard at work securing necessary land use entitlements with project engineers and consultants. The very least we ask of you is send us your conditional pledge commitment by downloading & completing this form, and mailing to PO Box 10338, Lahaina, HI 96761.
