On Saturday, March 22nd our team of eager employees joined with the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaii to kick off an exciting day full of activities and live entertainment at McCully Shopping Center. HiTel FCU set up a booth with their famous spin the wheel passing out a variety of prizes to the community. Other members of the group lined up along Kapiolani and McCully collecting donations by generous donors. The credit union alone had raised over $5,200 prior to the event. We would like to thank everyone who donated both their time and monetary donations to help the children of Hawaii.

HiTel FCU employees rehearsed a fire drill on the morning of December 18, 2013. It is an annual training exercise the credit union does to ensure the safety of their employees. The emergency evacuation procedure allows multiple escape routes for employees. There was a designated meeting place along KapalamaCanal, which was zoned by departments to make sure everyone was out safely.
Fire drills do not only ensure that staff and members understand what they need to do if there is a fire, but also to test how effectively everyone can evacuate, and look for ways to improve specific aspects of the procedure if it is necessary.
It is just as important for families to test fire alarms and practice escape drills with their children to reduce risks of injury or even death. So let’s be proactive!
