The National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) and the State Unit for Civil Protection and Firefighters of Jalisco (UEPCBJ) will hold the “Seminar on preventive measures and response to the risk of tsunamis”.
The seminar will be held on October 15 in Puerto Vallarta, in the framework of the International Day for Disaster Reduction, which is commemorated on October 13.
Jalisco was selected as the headquarters because the coast of the state is vulnerable to tsunamis and because of the preventive work that is carried out along the coastline.
Within the seminar, there will be the awarding of a short story and painting course with the theme ‘What is a tsunami and how would you protect yourself if one arrived?’
Children from public and private schools in the north and south coast of the state are invited to participate, they must send their work no later than September 14 via mail to the National Center for Disaster Prevention, located on Avenida Delfin Madrigal number 665 Colonia Pedregal de Santo Domingo, Coyoacán delegation, Mexico City.
