POST SERVICE

The measure urges the Postal Service to develop a procedure by which mail that originates on the same island to which it is addressed can be kept and sorted on that island. The Conferees agreed that the Postal Service would examine the feasibility of implementing procedures that take into account Hawaii's unique geography. This mail sorting issue arose in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack when air travel was temporarily halted between islands.

FEMA and Hurricane Katrina

In Hawaii and the Pacific, natural disasters -- hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunami, floods, drought and other catastrophes -- are a constant threat. We have experienced many over the years. Time and time again, Hawaii's people are compassionate, sharing and resilient. I have worked to enhance investments on the front end -- better/earlier warnings so people can prepare and take heed. I am currently working to grow a more comprehensive Federal Emergency Management Agency presence in Hawaii, in concert with the U.S. Coast Guard, to ensure that we are able to more quickly and effectively respond in time of disaster.

Below are some of my security and preparedness accomplishments for Hawaii:

National Disaster Preparedness Training Center.

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)--Pacific Operations.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Volcano Hazards Program.

Preparing Hawaii and the Nation for Tsunami.

Pacific Disaster Center (PDC).

Center for Excellence in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance.

Center of Excellence for Maritime Domain Awareness.

The State of Hawaii has and will continue to be confronted by multiple major disasters. The most important actions government can take in time of disaster is first to ensure that people are safe and out of harm's way. Next, it is to get government officials activated and assessing damage so recovery dollars can be disbursed to assist individuals and to rebuild public infrastructure. My responsibility is to see to it that sufficient government resources are available in a timely manner.
