Tsunami warning partnership

Sherita Sharma

THE National Disaster Management Office is working with the tourism industry to get the tsunami awareness message out.

Director Pajiliai Dobui said tsunami sirens in resorts and hotels would benefit not just the local communities but tourists too.

"We will try and find some donors who can fund this," he said.

"We encourage people who can buy it to do so and we can install it for them."

DISMAC has already put in place two tsunami sirens at the University of the South Pacific Laucala Campus and in Lami.

Mr Dobui also said the sound of a tsunami alarm had to be distinctive enough.
