The Maui Police Department just announced that today and tomorrow they’ll be conducting four “Joint Agency Emergency Preparedness Exercises” (read: active shooter training exercises) at various schools around Maui. The exercises will reportedly involve “simulated gunfire and shouting.” So if you see a large contingent around cops at any of the schools listed below, that’s probably why:
• Monday, July 27, 2015, at the Maui High School (660 S. Lono Ave., Kahului), from 8am to 11am
• Monday, July 27, 2015, at the Waihee School (2125 Kahekili Hwy., Wailuku), from 12pm to 2pm.
• Tuesday, July 28, 2015, at the Pukalani Elementary School (2945 Iolani St., Makawao), from 8am to 11am.
• Tuesday, July 28, 2015, at the Makawao Elementary School, (3542 Baldwin Ave., Makawao), from 12pm to 2pm.
