Schatz: Kona International Airport To Receive More Than $1 Million For New Fire Alarm System

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) today announced that the Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keāhole will receive $1.2 million to replace and upgrade its fire alarm system.

“This new fire alarm system will help ensure that Kona International Airport meets current safety standards, and help keep people safe,” said Senator Schatz, Chair of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development.

This new federal funding comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Airport Terminals Program, which provides funding to make airports safer, more accessible, and more sustainable. The Airport Terminals Program was created by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which is bringing billions to Hawai‘i for infrastructure improvements.
