    American Samoa, Guam, CNMI Outreach and TsunamiTeacher USA

    • FY10 NHTMP Funding ($191K total; TsunamiTeacher ~$80K)

    • Description: Develop USTT Yr 1 (compile, recommend, design). USTT will pull together wealth of US products into 1 resource / toolkit; USTT will develop new products to fill gaps

    • Accomplishments – TsunamiTeacher USA:

      • Handouts: Assessment, Updates, General Public prototype

      • Assessment Report:

        • Reviewed/identified US updates to intl TsunamiTeacher

        • Identified General Public as US-needed target audience

        • Adopt guidance from NRC Report Public Education (Ch 3)

        • Created 1 prototype for General Public module (Tsunami Basics)

      • USTT to complement Trainings/Outreach

    • Issues

      • Completion of USTT depends on NTHMP funding

      • Continual training and coordination needs in Pacific islands

    Us national education training programs
    US National Education/Training Programs

    • Professional development trainings to U.S. audiences exist. Target professionals and volunteers. Examples:

      • NDPTC Tsunami Awareness Course

      • COMET’s Tsunami Warning System module

      • Washington State Emergency Management Division’s Tsunami Train-the-Trainer Course

    • Identified Gap

      • National product: consistent / concise mg to general public

      • Use evidence-based approaches (Ch 3, NRC report), e.g. General Public Module - limit technical jargon, clear and concise, core action messages, portable format delivery

      • Also provide avenue to educate federal/state/local leadership in time sensitive jobs, e.g., when only limited time to convey essential info

    TsunamiTeacher USA Recommendations

    • Audience: General Public (6-12th grade education level)

    • Delivery: Fully narrated, with key risk info for effective response

    • Features: Simple, visual, fast-moving.

    • Modes of Delivery – Formats:

      • Visual, Self-contained delivery

      • Traditional and Mobile delivery (general public’s increasing capacity to access Internet content via mobile devices). Social Networking networks

        Offline: downloadable in several formats (for DVD player, computer, online, iPhone/Droid, etc)

        Online viewing (through web, flash, uTube, etc)

    Next step create tsunamiteacher usa
    Next Step: Create TsunamiTeacher USA

    • Update and improve Current Modules to include US best practices – Media, Schools, Public (Govt, Non-Govt) and Private Sector

    • Create General Public Module (6th-12th grade education level)

      • ID Topics (Tsunami & Earthquake) to include: request NTHMP input

      • Where possible, use existing products and materials

      • Regionalization? (HI & Pacific Islands, AK & West Coast, Atlantic & Gulf)

    • Potential topics are:

      • Tsunami:

        Tsunami Basics, Tsunami Science, Warnings, Evacuation, Exercises, Boats / Harbors

      • Earthquake:

        Earthquake Basics, Earthquake Science, Monitoring/Locating/Sizing, Prediction

      • Earthquake and Tsunami Risk (regionalized)

      • All-Hazards and General Preparedness

        When Disaster Strikes are you prepared

        What can businesses do to prepare for tsunamis and earthquakes?

        How do physically-disabled persons prepare for tsunamis and earthquakes?
