An Assessment of the B.C. Tsunami Warning System and Related Risk Reduction Practices

Research Report -- An Assessment of the B.C. Tsunami Warning System and Related Risk Reduction Practices

'bout time.

The threat of tsunami along the west coast of Canada has prompted the federal government and the Province of British Columbia to participate with other members of the international community in the Pacific Tsunami Warning System (PTWS). The B.C. Tsunami Warning System is, in effect, a regional component of the PTWS that consists of three functional subsystems for detection, emergency management, and public response. Together these critical links establish a three-stage detection and dissemination network to alert local populations along the B.C. coast to the threat of a potential or imminent tsunami.
