The purpose of this toolkit is to provide local authorities and communities along the Pacific Coast of Canada with information that will allow them to evaluate the many options available to provide notification and warning to the public of a potential or impending Tsunami wave.
In general, notification options fall into 2 categories:
1) Mass Notification Methods - common alerting to an area, such as sirens; 2) Addressable Notification Methods - targeted alerting such as pagers.
While this toolkit was developed specifically with tsunami hazards in mind, it may also be applicable to many other hazards that could impact communities.
