The Kitsap Department of Emergency Management (KCDEM) is participating in local and regional planning to address tsunami emergencies. Projects include:
- Partner with local governments to enhance tsunami evacuation signage.
- Partner with Puget Sound counties to study the impact of a catastrophic earthquake. Earthquakes can generate a tsunami that would impact ports and maritime operations.
- KCDEM is also active in state and local planning efforts. Learn more about the Cascadia Rising 2022.
