A Message from PCEMA

Thank you to those of you who were able to attend one of the Let’s Talk Tsunami community forums held in March and April. There were many excellent questions and comments! The Pacific County Emergency Management Agency appreciates the community’s participation and willingness to better prepare themselves, their families, and businesses in the event of a disaster. 

Following is a variety of information and links that were requested during the forums. Please feel free to share this information with your contacts. Again, the PCEMA office thanks you!
