The Division of Emergency Management actively prepares for and participates in the following functions:
TsunamiReady helps community leaders and emergency managers strengthen their local operations by being sufficiently prepared to save lives in the event of a Tsunami through better planning, education and awareness. Although no community is tsunami proof, being TsunamiReady can help minimize loss to our community.
Grays Harbor County continues to hold both designations of StormReady and TsunamiReady.
