Promoting Tsunami Preparedness

FEMA tsunami preparedness message illustrating a figure running to high ground as a tsunami approaches.

For people living near or visiting the coast and coastal waterways, awareness of the tsunami risk is critical. A number of states engage in preparedness messaging campaigns this week or during the month of April to heighten awareness and teach people how to prepare and what to do in the event of a tsunami. For example:

  • California’s Tsunami Preparedness Week (March 27-31)
  • Alaska’s Tsunami Preparedness Week (March 26-April 1)
  • Hawaii’s Tsunami Awareness Month (April)
  • British Columbia’s Tsunami Preparedness Week (April 9-15)
