Regions Trial Disaster Preparation Measures
Authorities in disaster-prone areas are gearing up to face potential disasters. BNPB has proposed that a presidential instruction be issued that requires regions to have clear and strong disaster management plans.
JAKARTA, KOMPAS – Hydrometeorological disasters like floods and landslides usually occur from the year-end to the beginning of the following year in many regions. Several regions are currently organizing disaster preparation measures amid the still traumatized survivors of previous disasters.
The measures include disseminating information on disaster risks, mapping disaster areas, setting up disaster command posts, holding disaster drills and organizing supplies and emergency funds.
