HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii lawmakers are proposing to move the state’s public safety facilities to one central area that is safer from flooding.

A resolution proposed by senators Michelle Kidani and Donovan Dela Cruz would also consolidate the state’s data centers from 30 sites to one. The resolution says the current data centers are poorly monitored and of low quality.

The lawmakers say the ideal site for a safety and data security campus would be a 150-acre plot in central Oahu. They say disasters such as Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy demonstrated the need to keep public safety sites far from floods and tsunamis.

The proposed site would also allow for reliable access to power, is near major roadways and offers quick access to downtown Honolulu and Honolulu International Airport.
