Make Your Evacuation Plan
About Your Plan
When you hear the siren, see an alert on your phone, or smell smoke coming through your housing unit, you need to know what to do! Make a plan now with your roommates or family members so that there is no hesitation or panic when disaster strikes. Have very clear rendezvous locations and make sure that every unit/family member knows what to do and where to go! Take into account pets and small children who may need help evacuating. Least of all, do not forget your emergency kit!
On-Campus Single Student Housing (Hales)
Plan to move to higher floors in the case of a tsunami or flooding. For fire or other evacuation assemble in the Hale Pavilion. For hurricane, shelter in place. See your Residential Life advisors for specific instructions.
On-Campus Married Student Housing (TVA)
Coordinate with upstairs neighbors in case of a tsunami or flooding. For fire or other evacuation, choose a central location and make sure your family knows to meet up there. For hurricane, shelter in place.

Move to a higher floor in the case of a tsunami or flooding. Plan with your family and decide on a rendezvous point in the case of fire or other emergency. For hurricane, shelter in place
Off-Campus Housing and Laie Community
Most of the community is located in a tsunami evacuation zone. HI-EMA recommends moving to high ground as soon as a Tsunami warning is issued. See the link below to find out if your home is in a tsunami evacuation zone. After you have evacuated, please keep the road clear for others and emergency responders. For hurricane, shelter in place.
