The University of Hawaii at Manoa is getting a $5 million federal grant to help train first responders to prepare for emergencies.

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa's office announced the grant on Friday. The Democrat representing urban Honolulu said in a statement that the grant will help keep residents and visitors safe during natural disasters and other threats.

The grant will fund the university's National Domestic Preparedness Training Center.

The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for members of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium.
