What is the Tsunami Awareness Program?

The Tsunami Awareness Program (TAP) - Hawaii is the result of a collaborative partnership between Hawaii Emergency Management Agency and the Pacific Disaster Center with support from the TsunamiReady Program.

TAP - Hawaii, developed in 2012, expands upon a collection of existing tsunami awareness and preparedness resources to include Hawaii-specific examples, resources and templates.

Program Goal

The goal of the Tsunami Awareness Program is to enhance community resilience through a facilitated education and outreach program that promotes hazard understanding and awareness, and offers tools and information resources to guide preparedness and response.

A further intent of the TAP is to make materials easily accessible to the public to foster tsunami awareness and guide community preparedness efforts with the ultimate goal of building long-term resilience to this hazard. Choose resources from the categories above to learn more about the tsunami hazard, develop a disaster preparedness plan for you and your family, assemble a disaster supply kit, and take life-saving actions during a tsunami.
