Guam - Dozens of island leaders from the government and private sector participated in the Center for Homeland Defense and Security's Pacific Executive Leaders Program today at The Hyatt. The leadership seminar aimed to educate leaders on how to better prepare for the next supertyphoon on island.

The Naval Post Graduate School's consultant David Fukutomi facilitated today's event. "You all have lived through all these terrible typhoons and I was here for Pongsona in 2002, we're trying to make sure that those lessons aren't forgotten so that the citizens of Guam are not only prepared but know their government is working very hard to make sure services will be provided and survivors will be cared for in a proper manner," he said.

The event wrapped late this afternoon with a similar seminar to be held in Saipan on Wednesday.
