Tsunami Warning Focal Points (TWFP):

 

 The designated official or point of contact (primary and alternate) available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to receive tsunami and other coastal hazard-related information bulletins and warning guidance. The Tsunami Warning Focal Point (TWFP) has the responsibility of notifying the emergency authority (civil defence or other designated agency responsible for public safety) of the event characteristics (earthquake and/or tsunami), in accordance with the procedures of the Tsunami Response Plan. The TWFP receives tsunami advisory information from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) or other regional warning centres.
