The West Maui Taxpayers Association is working with the Maui Emergency Management Agency, the Pacific Disaster Center and state Emergency Management Agency on developing a customized disaster plan to meet West Maui’s needs.

West Maui is at times isolated from Maui’s major hospital and airport because of frequent road closures, fires and flooding, and has highlighted the need for preparedness planning, a news release said.
