Disaster Preparedness and Response

- The state of Hawai'i is the first "TsunamiReady" state. This program helps community leaders and emergency managers with their local tsunami operations.
- The Pacific Tsunami Museum (PTM) has worked with other organizations to produce publications that address the important issues of disaster preparedness and response.
