Kahului Fire Station, County Building to be lit red in remembrance of fallen firefighters

The Kahului Fire Station and Kalana O Maui County Building will be lit red this week in remembrance of fallen firefighters, including County of Maui Firefighter Tre’ Evans-Dumaran.

Evans-Dumaran lost his life in February 2023 after being swept into the ocean while responding to flooding in Kihei. He will have his name added to the National Fallen Firefighter Memorial at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Md., during National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend May 4 and 5. County of Maui Fire Chief Brad Ventura and members of the Maui Fire Department’s Honor Guard will attend the event.

The Kahului Fire Station will be lit red from 8 to 10 p.m. today through Sunday in support of the event. Kalana O Maui will be lit red from 8 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
