7 - 11 November 2016, Choluteca, Honduras

The five TEMPP training workshops cover the following topics:
•Tsunami Modeling (use of ComMIT software), July 27-31, 2015
•Tsunami Seismic Sources and Tsunami Inundation Map Development (based on prior ComMIT training), February 29 – March 3, 2016
•Tsunami Evacuation Mapping (based on inundation maps), August 15-19, 2016
•Tsunami Response Plans and Exercises, November 7-11, 2016
•Tsunami Exercise (including evacuation), expected November / December 2016

The ITIC, with NOAA’s Caribbean Tsunami Warning Program (CTWP), and the UNESCO IOC are organizing the trainings. The language of trainings will be Spanish. Course materials will be in both Spanish and English.

TEMPP emphasizes a team approach for building country tsunami preparedness.
Each TEMPP training builds from the previous training, and it is assumed that once trained, participants will share the information learned on return to their country. A TEMPP country team should be comprised of, at a minimum, all participants to the TEMPP trainings. It should include scientists (responsible for tsunami hazard risk assessment and tsunami inundation modeling), GIS experts (responsible for making maps), emergency managers (responsible for tsunami public safety and preparedness), and tsunami warning center staff (responsible for issuing warnings for during events).

The TEMPP4 training, September 26-30, 2016, builds from the third training (TEMPP3, Tsunami Evacuation Mapping) and will teach the process for creating practical tsunami response plans for communities. It is recommended that the TEMPP4 participant should be the person responsible for tsunami emergency response plans in the country. Prior to attending, the TEMPP4 participant should meet with the TEMPP3 participant (and/or TEMPP Country Team) to obtain the tsunami evacuation map that will be used to create the evacuation procedures in the tsunami response plan.
