TASK VI. Promote and seek support and partnerships at state and federal level for long-term tsunami hazard mitigation. 

At the national level there is a National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program (NTHMP), which presently include the states of Washington, Alaska, Oregon, California, and Hawaii. This program is sponsored by FEMA, NOAA, USGS, and state co-sharing. During the PRTWMP we were able to attend various meetings and workshops sponsored by the NTHMP and we hope to be able to become a member in the near future.

Personnel Involved:
Prof. Aurelio Mercado – Department of Marine Sciences – RUM/UPR 
Ms. Christa von Hillebrandt - Puerto Rico Seismic Network
