Seems Tofino could work on thier plan too; communications wise. The sirens worked well and the public address was great. However I didn't get a phone call from the DOT until an hour after the wave could have hit.Saddly the PA system stated tune in your local radio station. The DJ however had to interpete the data from NOAA and other sources. You would think that; with a situation as potentialy serious as this could have been the district should have directly fed info to the station. Kudos to Jeff for doing a good job keeping us informed!Just a general observation for those of you that were speeding dangerously around town to the comm center and other safe places Slow down! Getting into an accident due to your reckless driving would only have placed even more pressure on the already taxed resources if an event had happened.
I understand that the hospital was not informed by the District when they put their plan into action. One would think that they would a be a high priority notification. It seems there are still some bugs to be worked out in the procedures.Having said that, kudos to Tofino for taking action.
just a question. isn't the radio station in a dangerous position to disseminate emerency info? Isn't Jeff putting himself in danger by sticking around the station or is he able to control the station wirelessly from the evacuation site?

It would seem that a siren is needed in the downtown core. I didn't know anything was going on until almost 10pm when I logged onto Facebook. I was in my downtown home all evening and had no idea that any thing was different. Upon stepping outside, all was quiet.My first phone call was at Midnight and another one at 9 am. That was well after the first wave was to have hit.
