  • Have more than one way to receive tsunami warnings and to alert the public
  • Promote public readiness through community education and the distribution of information
  • Develop a formal tsunami plan, which includes holding emergency exercises.
  • Comply with TsunamiReady guidelines

If you have read the guidelines above and coordinated with your local National Weather Service office, you're ready to apply for recognition.
