To Our Members Affected by the Fires in Hawaii

Aug 18, 2023

With the destruction caused by the fires in Hawaii’s Maui County and Hawaii County, the ASRT Board of Directors and staff send their sympathy and concern to the hundreds of members and their families who live in Maui. Our thoughts are with all of you as you recover from these devastating fires.

We have implemented a measure to support our members affected by this disaster. For ASRT members in Maui County and Hawaii County, we have automatically extended your membership until November 1, 2023. This applies to members scheduled to renew within the next three months. You will retain your original join date and your member record will not show any lapse in membership.

If you have been displaced because of the fires and have a new mailing address, please update your membership record online by going to or by calling ASRT at 800-444-2778. Please note that the storm could affect the delivery of the August/September issue of ASRT Scanner and the September/October issue of Radiologic Technology.

Radiologic technologists who are concerned about their ability to meet their CE requirements should contact the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists at 651-687-0048, Ext. 8540. The ARRT establishes CE policies for its registrants.

Many ASRT members have contacted us to express their interest in assisting with relief efforts. Because ASRT does not have the infrastructure to organize disaster recovery efforts, we encourage our members to volunteer with reputable, established relief teams that are already in place. For example, those interested in volunteering for cleanup efforts, shelter operations or recovery teams can contact the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army or Samaritan’s Purse.

Members also may choose to support these organizations with financial donations. ASRT has donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross on our members’ behalf to support relief efforts.

Individuals who would like to donate can text HAWAII to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which helps people affected by disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires and tornadoes. For questions, please contact ASRT Member Services at 800-444-2778 or [email protected].

Again, we hope all radiologic technologists affected by the fires are safe, secure and on the path to recovery. Our thoughts are with you.
