Communities at Risk
Schools, playgrounds, hospitals, factories and homes
are often built in areas vulnerable to tsunamis. The TsunamiReady Program,
developed by the National
Weather Service, is designed to help cities, towns, counties, universities
and other large sites in coastal areas reduce the potential for
disastrous tsunami-related consequences.
TsunamiReady helps community leaders
and emergency managers strengthen their local operations. TsunamiReady
communities are better prepared to save lives through better
planning, education and awareness. Communities have fewer fatalities
and property damage if they plan before a tsunami arrives. No community
is tsunami proof, but TsunamiReady can help minimize loss to
your community. Find out what's involved in becoming TsunamiReady.
