    Honolulu, Hawaii- The Hawaii National Guard is hosting exercise Vigilant Guard/Makani Pahili 2015 (VG/MP15), beginning today. VG/MP15 will be held over the next eight days, at multiple locations, on four Hawaiian Islands and will have over 2,200 participants. More than 700 of those participants are coming from five other states and Guam. Observers from seven Asia-Pacific countries will also attend.

    Makani Pahili is the state’s annual hurricane exercise led by the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (HIEMA), formerly known as State Civil Defense, which coincides with the beginning of the annual hurricane season. Vigilant Guard is a large-scale, regional exercise sponsored by U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM) and the National Guard Bureau (NGB). This year, the two exercises have been combined to make this the largest disaster preparedness exercise in Hawaii National Guard history. Planning for VG/MP15 has been in the works for over a year.
