A reference group for the Australia-New Zealand Emergency Management Committee (ANZEMC)

Australian Tsunami Advisory Group (ATAG)

The Australian Tsunami Advisory Group (ATAG) is a reference group for the Australia-New Zealand Emergency Management Committee (ANZEMC) and its sub-committees. ATAG provides national leadership in the coordination of programs and projects relating to tsunami capability development, promoting research, information, knowledge management and education in Australia.

In 2010, ATAG received National Emergency Management Project (NEMP) funding to develop a Tsunami Community Education Strategy, including five and ten-year strategic plans for national tsunami community education. In 2012, additional NEMP funding was received to develop ‘Tsunami – The Ultimate Guide’: a resource to increase community awareness of tsunami and the risk it poses in Australia.
