Emergency Chief Resigns. The fallout is still being felt from the false emergency alert earlier this month that warned residence of an incoming missile strike on Hawaii. Officials there announced Tuesday that the head of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency has resigned. This was not the first such mix-up fot this employee. At least twice before this false alarm, he “has confused real life events and drills” a state investigation concluded. He had also “been a source of concern for over 10 years” to his employees.
