Mission Statement

In this challenging world of global terrorism, homeland security, extreme natural hazards, and human suffering, the members of the Lions Clubs International District 50 will provide immediate and timely assistance to our neighbors and communities in preparing for, during, and in the aftermath of such critical emergency situations.


All District 50 clubs are invited to participate in the “EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLAN COMMITTEE“, to collectively develop the “LIONS INTERATIONAL DISTRICT 50 EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLAN,” which will establish a clear and integrated process where the Lions Clubs can interface with emergency response agencies.
Participating Lions Club Members will partner with community emergency response teams to develop Zone Plans and/or community emergency preparedness plans such as: “REGION I, ZONE I EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLAN”, or a basic “EMERGENCY SHELTER TRAINING AND MANAGEMENT PLAN”.
Lion Members shall have their own Emergency Preparedness Plan Kit which consists of a home survival kit, evacuation kit, and first aid kit.
Develop programs to assist Hawaii’s Special Needs population in the event of emergency evacuation procedures.
Opportunities to Serve: “Adopt a Shelter”, “Adopt a Care Home”, “Retrofitting of Emergency Shelters Project”, “Ho`opono Center for the Blind”, “Shelter in Place”, “Lions Volunteer at State Civil Defense HQ”, Red Cross Ham Radio Operators, Security, Cooking, Medical Assist,”Lions Public Awareness
