Wailea Fire Station

The Wailea Fire Station, located at 300 Kilohana Dr, Kihei, HI 96753, is one of 14 fire stations in Southern Maui County, which encompasses four islands and serves under Hawaii’s Fire & Public Safety Department. The Wailea Fire Station serves the community of Wailea (a census-designated place (CDP)) with a population of 5,938 according to the 2010 census. It features many popular resorts, including the 1,500-acre Wailea Resort.

Since the state of Hawaii has virtually no city governments in the entire state and only four counties, The Wailea Fire Station must cover a lot of territory within Maui County, which encompasses the populated islands of Maui, Lanai, and Molokai. In addition to protecting the local population, the Wailea Fire Station must be ready to respond to emergencies throughout the community in Wailea Beach. From top-tier restaurants and championship golf courses to the gorgeous coast of Maui, the Wailea Fire Station serves throughout the district as the community’s first responders.

When it comes to helping the public understand fire safety issues, the Wailea Fire Station participates in Maui County’s Fire Department Public Education and Training Services to promote fire safety awareness. The public can tour the Wailea Fire Station by making an appointment for a 45-minute to 1-hour walk through the station to learn about firefighting equipment and what type of skills it takes to be a firefighter.

The department also performs school visits to educate children in Maui County schools about what to do in the case of a fire emergency, which has resulted in cases where children used what they learned to save lives. There are several other fire education programs that the Wailea Fire Station may participate in as part of the Maui County Fire Department. These programs include a Workplace Fire Safety Program, a General Home Fire Safety Program, a Fire Safety Program for Seniors, and Fire Extinguisher Training for the general public.
