This work is a proposal to spread the knowledge of tsunamis in the schools of the Caribbean coast
of Costa Rica. Ignorance of basic information about tsunamis and the existing threat, could result
in deaths in areas where tsunami occur. For this reason, we have implemented this project which
is intended to inform the population of coastal schools of the natural threat and how to deal with it.
It is expected to prepare the population to adequately face an emergency by tsunami and reduce
its impact. The work will be done through information sessions, training workshops and the production of a video that will be used for a permanent training in schools. The selected schools are in the communities of Barra del Colorado, Barra the Tortuguero, Barra de Parismina, Puerto Limón, Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo.
