In brief: Move
Tsunamis only occur in coastal regions.
Depending upon your fear of risk, you could move away from the coast if that is too fearful for you. A true tsunami is so powerful that there is nothing you can do to protect yourself except to be alert to warnings and quickly get to higher ground when there is a prediction of one. Look at the extensive damage of the recent japanese one - no place to hide.

Getting ready before a tsunami strikes will help reduce damage to your home and business and help you survive.
If you live in a New Zealand coastal area, ask your council about your tsunami risk and local warning arrangements: http://www.getthru.govt.nz/disasters/tsunami/
