Revised July 27, 2007 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

Mark Your Calendars For Peace!


 1.  The State Dept. of Health Program Manager, Russell Takata, will be conducting free Radiation/Nuclear   Awareness classes in Hilo and Kona.  The class consists of training protocol fireman and police utilize

at the Nevada Test site.  The Hilo class is set for Saturday, July 28th 8AM-1:30PM with radiation monitor equipment training from 1:30-3PM at the Environmental Health Office 1582 Kamehameha Ave.  The

 class is open to the public and has been scheduled due to citizen concern about possible military

related  radiation contamination on Hawaii Island from Pohakuloa live-fire training in the center of Hawaii Island.  The Kona offering of the Rad/Nuc Awareness class is scheduled on Saturday, August 11, 2007,

8:00 am-3:00 pm, at the King Kamehameha Hotel.


 2.  The U.S. Army now says it plans to do radiological monitoring at Pohakuloa starting in August 2007.  Also participating in the monitoring will be the State of Hawaii Dept. of Health, the Center For Disease Control (CDC), and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).  Military radiation contamination has been confirmed on Oahu and the military now says such contamination may also exist on Hawaii Island. Your help is needed.  Ask Gov. Lingle to appoint Dr. Lorrin Pang to oversee the military's radiation testing on all suspected areas of Hawaii.  Dr. Pang is a local doctor with an extensive military background that has the confidence of the community.
