Mahalo nui loa, Darryl Oliveira

Detailed Description

Darryl Oliveira, speaking with Puna residents about Kīlauea Volcano's June 27th flow during a community meeting at Pāhoa High School on September 25, 2014. This lava flow threatened lower Puna District communities only a few weeks after Hurricane Iselle made landfall in the same area of Hawai‘i Island. Darryl's unflappable professionalism during these back-to-back crises was a hallmark of his tenure as Administrator of Hawai‘i County Civil Defense. He retires on May 1, 2016. Photo courtesy of
