First NEAMTWS Enlarged Communication Test Exercise

Event Type Other
Date(s)(yyyy-mm-dd) Start: 2011-08-10
Location Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute,
Summary NEAMTWS-ECTE1 will address questions related to the evaluation and issuance of the warning message by tsunami watch/warning centres, as in the previous Communication Test Exercise, but will also attempt to assess the national and/or local response and warning dissemination mechanisms once emergency authorities receive a warning. This Exercise will involve all possible Tsunami Warning Focal Points (TWFPs) in the NEAM region using conventional message dissemination channels that have been previously subject to test between candidate Regional Tsunami Watch Centers (RTWCs) and National Tsunami Warning Centres (NTWCs). NEAMTWS-ECTE1 is also seeking the involvement of Civil Protection-Disaster Management Agencies, especially considering the first Tsunami Exercise in the NEAM region, NEAMWave12, which is currently being planned and is expected to take place in the second half of 2012.
