Before a tsunami

Getting ready before a tsunami strikes will help reduce damage to your home and business and help you survive.

  • If you have a disability or special requirements, arrange with your support network to alert you of any warnings and emergency broadcasts.
  • Develop a Household Emergency Plan and have a Getaway Kit ready.
  • Know where the nearest high ground is and how you will reach it. Plan to get as high up or as far inland as you can. Plan your escape route for when you are at home, as well as for when you may be working or holidaying near the coast.
