TsunamiReady™ Helps Communities at Risk

Schools, playgrounds, hospitals, factories and homes are often built in areas vulnerable to tsunamis. The NWS TsunamiReady Program is designed to help cities, towns, counties, universities and other large sites in coastal areas reduce the potential for disastrous tsunami-related consequences.

Since June 20, 2001, TsunamiReady has helped community leaders and emergency managers strengthen their local operations. TsunamiReady communities are better prepared to save lives through planning, education and awareness. Communities have fewer fatalities and property damage if they are prepared. No community is tsunami proof, but TsunamiReady can help minimize loss to your community. Find out what's involved in becoming TsunamiReady.
