Capacity and Contacts for In-Country Emergency Response

Government

The Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana (BNPB) was created and has the functions of coordinator and commander during emergency responses. BNPB is supported by ministers and other government authorities, meanwhile at local level it is supported by BPBD (Provincial Disaster Management Agency) and local government. Currently all BPBD Offices have been established in 33 provinces within Indonesia. National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) is a non-department governmental agency headed by a ministerial-level official. This institution is directly responsible to the President of Indonesia.

The provincial office for BPBD has been established in Bali and is currently operating to respond to emergencies. They have representative offices situated in the following locations in Bali :

District Capital Town
Badung Regency Mangupura 
Bangli RegencyBangli 
Buleleng RegencySingaraja 
Denpasar CityDenpasar 
Gianyar RegencyGianyar 
Jembrana RegencyNegara 
Karangasem RegencyAmlapura 
Klungkung RegencySemarapura 
Tabanan RegencyTabanan

A contingency plan has been developed locally which outlines the official role and procedures of BPBD when responding to emergencies in Bali. As with other BPBD’s located throughout the country there is a substantial amount of equipment that has been procured by the Indonesian Government for use during the emergency response. Refer to attachments for a list of the equipment. 

In addition to BPBD, there is also search and rescue capability in Bali from Basarnas (SAR). They provide the operational assistance in search and rescue activities from sea or shipping disasters, air disasters or other as required.

Humanitarian Community

The humanitarian community in Bali is supported by the activities of the PMI (Indonesian Red Cross) and other NGO’s.  In addition, UNDSS has a local security assistant available for support if required.
