1) Find out if your home is in a danger area.
Know the height of your street above sea level and the distance of your street from the coast.
Be familiar with the tsunami warning signs.
People living along the coast should take earthquakes under consideration as a warning signal of a coming tsunami. A rise or fall in coastal waters is a sign that a tsunami is approaching the coast.
2) Make evacuation plans.
Pick an inland location that is elevated to a high level. After a natural disaster strikes, roads may be blocked off. It is essential to pick more than one evacuation route.
Teach family members how and when to turn off gas, electricity, and water.
Teach children how and when to call 9-1-1 and which radio station to listen for information.
3) Have disaster supplies on hand.
Portable, battery-operated radio
First aid kit
Emergency food and water
Develop an emergency communication plan.
4) In case family members are separated from one another during a tsunami have a plan for getting back together. Ask a relative or friend to be the "family contact" in case of emergency. After a disaster, often it's easier to call long distance. Make sure everyone knows about the contact person.
