Our entire State is deeply saddened for the Enriquez and Kalama Ohana and our HPD brothers and sisters as they find solace from a horrific and senseless tragedy. Honolulu fire fighters who responded to the scene were also caught in the fray. Many of you may have Ohana employed with HPD or EMS who responded. As fire fighters, our instincts tell us to go put out the fire, but an active shooter situation underscores the reality of the dangers of a first responder’s job. This tragedy will be remembered as the Hibiscus Drive Incident. For some, it may take a long while for the wound to heal; for the scar to fade. If you need to talk or find yourself unable to find balance, please seek assistance. Call your Peer Support Team or any HFFA board member.
