This exercise was organized by the Intergovernmental Coordination Group of Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning System (ICG/IOTWS). This exercise was conducted in 15 countries in the Indian Ocean on the same day, to coincide with World Disaster Reduction Day.

In this event, the Department of Meteorology as the National Meteorological and Tsunami Early Warning Centre was issued the ‘Tsunami Watch’ and ‘Tsunami Warnings’ only to the Disaster Management Centre according to this exercise. The Disaster Management Centre was disseminated these messages to the selected communities through their early warning dissemination system.
