OBJECTIVES OF THE PILOT PROJECT

  • The primary objective was to conduct a Pilot Project to develop, test, and refine a critical component that is essential to the NTHMP Educational Program – i.e., a curriculum for Community-specific Tsunami Public Education Workshops. The Shoalwater Bay Tribe in Pacific County, WA, hosted a Community-specific Tsunami Public Education Workshop, with participants that included officials and residents of both the Tribe and the neighboring communities of Tokeland and North Cove, WA.

PRE-WORKSHOP COORDINATION MEETING

          • Earthquake Risk
          • Tsunami Modeling
          • Inundation Maps
          • Community Exposure
          • Community Resilience
          • Tsunami Warning

What community assets are in tsunami-prone areas?

What impact could a tsunami have on the community’s economy, critical infrastructure, and social services?
