NC incident management team returns home from Hawaii

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Members of a North Carolina incident management team who have been serving in Hawaii since May 19 returned home this weekend.

Another team from North Carolina has replaced them to assist the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency in staffing its emergency operations center on a 24-hour basis.

The team has been helping plan and coordinate evacuations as well as assisting with shelters as Mount Kilauea continues erupting lava from open fissures.

The new team is made up of eight county emergency managers including Major Donald Taft with the New Hanover Sheriff’s Office.

The assignment for this new team in Hawaii will last for two weeks.
