Hawaii Boater's Hurricane and Tsunami Safety Manual

image hurricaneboatersmanual 7-01-13This manual provides a summary of the actions boaters and other members of Hawai‘i’s marine community can take before, during, and after a hurricane or tsunami. It is intended to assist in preparing for and mitigating the effects of these hazards. It includes information on these events and their dangers, provides guidelines to develop a personal preparedness plan, and lists emergency assistance information (that is, phone numbers, radio frequencies, and hurricane evacuation shelter locations).
The manual was produced by Hawai‘i State Civil Defense and funded in part by a grant/cooperative agreement from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and sponsored by the UH Sea Grant. ITIC was a partner and contributor in the development of the manual.
