Moisés Molina was on duty in the Chilean
coastal resort town of Iloca when the ground
started shaking in the early morning hours of
February 27, 2011. He was not from the
coast but he had seen the tsunami
evacuation signs posted in the town and
when he saw the ocean change character,
he realized it was time to evacuate. He
coordinated his police staff and successfully
notified everyone, including unsuspecting
campers, to evacuate. Thanks to his efforts,
no one in Iloca died.

Aveao Faausu Fonoti, Mayor of Amanave, shows the bullhorn he used on the morning of September 29, 2009 to notify the residents of his village in American Samoa. He had attended a workshop sponsored by the
Samoan Affairs Office for mayors about
tsunamis only a few weeks beforehand and
remembered that ground shaking was a
natural warning. He ran through the village
blowing the bullhorn and alerting residents
to the danger. Although 80% of
the buildings in his village were destroyed,
no one died and no one was seriously injured.
