Hawaii National Guard photo A member of the Hawaii National Guard’s 93rd Civil Support Team trains in a HAZMAT suit. The unit, along with Hawaii Police Department, Hawaii Fire Department, Hawaii County Civil Defense and Hilo Benioff Medical Center, will train all-day today on the Waiakea High School campus. There will be no students on campus and the training is not open to the public.

Waiakea High School will take on the appearance of Ground Zero today — but rest assured, this is only a drill.
