‘ACTIVE SHOOTER AWARENESS PRESENTATION’:  Waimea School Cafeteria.  WCA’s February Town Meeting will be devoted entirely to this important presentation by  Lt. Thomas A. Shopay III with the Hawai’i County Police Department’s Special Response Team.  This presentation should be attended by all adults and while we’d all prefer to think it couldn’t happen here, given the world we live in today, we’re foolish not to be prepared.  Also joining us for the evening will be newly appointed Hawai’i County Police Chief Paul Ferreira.  

Free and all invited.
