Disaster Management Media
Most Indonesian areas are earthquake disaster-prone areas. Since the 2002 Bali bombing, IDEP Foundation has prepared community disaster guidelines. IDEP has developed a wide range of public education and self help resources related to Community Based Disaster Management (CBDM).
These books are used in training courses held by IDEP Foundation, local and international institutions, private sector and governments to provide disaster understanding for the community and outreach groups. Through these media, the community can learn the techniques of self rescue and evacuation routes in their neighborhood.
Indonesia's vulnerability to disasters makes this guidance important at the community level helping to save large groups of people from suffering. For example, the SurfAid International helped the community in Mentawai Islands, West Sumatera, by using our disaster media to train and prepare communities for disaster. When the tsunami sruck the Mentawai on October 25, 2010, the community of the North Pagai Tumalei evacuated themselves to safer places, based on the training. Only 1 death occured out of around 120 citizens. In villages which did not receive disaster training, unfortunately most residents died, totalling about 400 people.
