MEMBERS OF THE PACIFIC AIR FORCE & THE AIR FORCE CIVILIAN ADVISORY COUNCIL VISIT HART'S
RAIL OPERATIONS CENTER 

Representatives of the Pacific Air Force and Air Force Civilian Advisory Council were on the ROC this week, paying a visit to HART's Rail Operations Center (ROC) in Waipahu. The group of nearly 20 active duty personnel and civilians were given a first-hand look at both the Operations Center and HART's first pair of rail cars.

HART's Director of Design and Construction Frank Kosich began the tour with an informational briefing.  Later, Ansaldo Honolulu's Senior Project Manager Enrico Fontana led the group through the ROC facilities and onto one of the Rail Project's trains.  

HART continues to work closely with Oahu's military community at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. When the Rail Project is complete, Pearl Harbor officials are anticipating that several hundred of its civilian employees will use rail to commute to and from Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.  The resulting reduction in vehicular traffic will benefit both residents and visitors.

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS, 
IT'S NEVER TO EARLY! 

Hawaii's hurricane season runs through the end of November and as a public service, the HART Team would like to remind you about some of the notifications used by the City & County of Honolulu's Department of Emergency Management.

When a HURRICANE WATCH is issued, it means the threat of hurricane conditions (high winds and storm surge) are expected within 48 hours.  Preliminary precautions should be taken.

While under a HURRICANE WARNING, residents can expect hurricane conditions within 36 hours and people are urged to take quick action to protect life and property.  This is also when  evacuations are generally ordered.

In recent years, Hawaii has faced a number instances in which hurricanes have just missed our state after a WATCH has been ordered.  Do not be lulled into a false sense of security. It's not a matter of IF a hurricane will strike our islands, but rather WHEN.

Hurricanes combine the threat of violent winds, torrential rains and damaging storm surge. Each of these by themselves could pose a serious threat to life and property.  Taken collectively, they are capable of causing widespread catastrophic destruction. 

The threat is REAL!  Please visit www.oahuDEM.org for more life-saving information.
