The RCTWG has developed materials to educate North Coast residents about earthquakes and tsunami hazards, including brochures in English and Spanish and Living on Shaky Ground, a preparedness magazine series.
The RCTWG and Humboldt State University have developed relative tsunami hazard maps for much of the North Coast. The maps have been the basis for evacuation planning and response plans.
The Earthquake-Tsunami Room at County Fairs
The RCTWG sponsors displays at the Humboldt and Del Norte County Fairs which features a different theme each year. The room is staffed by professionals from RCTWG agencies and students from Humboldt State University. Exhibits have included a shake trailer, tsunami wave tank, real-time earthquake display, seismograph, liquefaction tank, an earthquake-tsunami theater and preparedness materials.
