Tsunami Safe learning module iconTsunami Mitigation Showcase - Newport Oregon Tsunami Safe Haven

This booklet provides information how the City of Newport increased the public safety of its community by successfully completing a tsunami mitigation project. This booklet, telling Newport’s story, is part of a collection, the FEMA Region X Mitigation Showcase, to illustrate different ways in which local communities have leveraged partnerships and collaborated with state and federal partners to complete mitigation projects that address vulnerabilities to earthquakes and/or tsunamis. These narratives describe how project partners worked together to effectively navigate FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance requirements, build political and public support, and describe what lessons were learned throughout the project process. Information provided in each booklet intends to inspire and support other communities that wish to pursue similar mitigation action.
