The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services invites the public to a free
educational presentation on maritime tsunami evacuation procedures on Wednesday, Sept. 26,
2018 at 4 p.m. at the Blue Lake Casino Sapphire Palace.
This presentation is geared toward recreational and commercial boaters and will cover the
tsunami hazards specific to boaters in the Humboldt Bay region. Attendees will learn what to
expect in the event of a tsunami, how to get tsunami warnings, how to safely evacuate to protect
yourself and your boat before a distant source tsunami arrives and what to do in the event of a
near source tsunami.
The maritime tsunami evacuation presentation is part of Tsunami Con 2018, a two-day training
hosted by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services. Community partners and
emergency responders will be attending Tsunami Con to learn best practices for emergency
response and preparedness in the event of a tsunami.
