Everyone, everywhere should know how to be prepared for tsunamis and what to do to be safe. This is true for people who live or work near the coast, but also for anyone who may visit someday. It’s important to know whether or not you are in a tsunami evacuation zone.
If you are in a tsunami evacuation zone then you need to know your evacuation route or what we like to call your ‘tsunami walk’. A tsunami walk is a walk that takes you along your tsunami evacuation route either inland or towards high ground.
If you are interested in organising a tsunami walk for your family, organisation or your community to help spread the word then download the Tsunami Walk Guide or send a message to our East Coast LAB Community Science Coordinator.
