Various disasters in Indonesia in the recent decade, such as floods, landslides, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions, require government officials, community and other related groups to professionally master disaster emergency management. Due to the lack of management, disaster management in Indonesia up until now seems unorganized.
This activity is sponsored by the International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP), United States Department of Justice, with the instructor John A. Montanio. Equipped with this knowledge, disaster emergency situation in many areas vulnerable to disasters can be handled better in the future. "After the training, participants would be far better in understanding the principles of ICS (Incident Command System), about the legislation in force, the establishment of emergency response organization structure, organization of resources, and staff. They are also expected to be able to conduct the disaster emergency contingency planning and integrated command training," said Sudibyakto.
