The Regional Disaster Information Center (CRID) is an initiative sponsored by six organizations that decided to join efforts to ensure the compilation and dissemination of disaster-related information in Latin America and the Caribbean.

These organizations are:

  • Pan American Health Organization - Regional Office of the World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO).
  • International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR/UN).
  • Costa Rica National Risk Prevention and Emergency Commission (CNE).
  • International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
  • Coordination Center for Natural Disaster Prevention in Central America (CEPREDENAC).

 

CRID has developed a database of Spanish language materials focused on tsunami preparedness. The materials have been developed for various audiences, including: teacher, students, community members and emergency officials.  Click here to visit the website and explore this valuable content.

ITIC develops AWR-217 Tsunami Awareness Course for US DHS/FEMA

ITIC develops AWR-217 Tsunami Awareness Course for US DHS/FEMA

   ITIC, with SeismicReady Consulting and NOAA PMEL, has developed a 1-day certified Tsunami Awareness course (AWR-217) for the US Dept. of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS). The course fills a gap as there is currently little institutionalized tsunami training in the USA. AWR-217 was done in partnership with the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC) of the University of Hawaii. NDPTC specializes in multi-natural hazards training for a wide range of US customers, including federal/state/local government officials and emergency managers, police, fire, and NGO’s in coastal communities.
   Since 2010, courses have been taught in American Samoa, CNMI, Guam, Hawaii, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, Washington, and the USVI.  The course was adapted for international use by ITIC, and taught in Fiji, Tonga, and Vanuatu.  Contact ITIC for more information.
