The International Tsunami Information Center (ITIC) received a request in 2012 from Juan Camacho of the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) – Homeland Security & Emergency Management (HSEM) to create a workshop that better prepares coastal businesses and hotels to respond to tsunami hazards. The workshop would provide guidance on how to protect the safety of their employees, customers, and business operations.
The ITIC staff (including Dr. Laura Kong, Brian Yanagi, and Nicolás Arcos) researched, created, and delivered “Tsunami Response Workshop for Businesses” pilots in CNMI and Guam in September 2013, with assistance from the Weather Forecast Office (WFO) Guam.
ITIC would like to acknowledge CNMI HSEM and WFO Guam for their contributions to this workshop and manual.
