Preparing Your Community for Tsunamis

This guidebook is designed to help you prepare your coastal community for tsunamis. This goes beyond preparing yourself and your loved ones. It means taking steps to educate your entire community about when and how to evacuate for tsunamis. It means helping your local government to be prepared to mobilize and coordinate evacuations, and it means working to change your community's development, so that tsunamis will cause less damage. It means becoming a tsunami safety advocate. This is the Working Draft Version 2
