Local Planning Guidance on Tsunami Response


California Office of Emergency Services  logoThe California Office of Emergency Services (OES) created this planning guidance to assist local governments in the initial development of a tsunami repsonse plan and the procedures necessary to deal with a tsunami’s impact on their communities. The guidance covers three main areas:

  • Use of Model Inundation Maps
  • Development of tsunami specific plans, including evacuations procedures
  • Explanation of tsunami warning procedures.

The planning guidance is designed for use by local governments but may also be useful for the state and federal agencies that support local governments.
