In 2016, the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program (NTHMP) will recognize Tsunami Preparedness Week the last week in March to coincide with the date of the 1964 Great Alaska Earthquake and Tsunamis (March 27). While some states and territories also plan to promote tsunami preparedness this week, others do so at different times. Below are some dates for state and territorial tsunami preparedness campaigns in 2016:
- March 13-19: Puerto Rico,U.S. Virgin Islands
- March 27-April 2: Alaska, California
- April: Hawaii
- September 25-31: American Samoa
- October: Oregon, Washington
