RANET Alert Watcher (RAW)

The RANET Alert Watcher service provides tsunami threat information via SMS. Subscribers (Pacific regional and national personnel involved in public warning and emergency management) receive a text message on their mobile device with key information from messages and statements issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC). PTWC determines the list of subscribers, which is vetted through the UNESCO/Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Tsunami Unit.
