The public test of the draft disaster management plan that took place in Samarinda City, Thursday, involved the district/city level BPBD, related regional apparatus organizations, volunteer representatives, academics, forest business associations, River Basin Forum, and Disaster Care Journalists (Wapena) in East Kalimantan .

“We have compiled this disaster management plan document as a step to identify risks, raise awareness of risks, and plan for disaster management,” said the Chief Executive of BPBD for East Kalimantan Province, Yudha Pranoto.

The public review of disaster management plan documents includes submitting the results of studies on areas prone to natural disasters such as floods, landslides, as well as forest and land fires.

According to the BPBD, parts of East Kalimantan that are prone to flooding include Samarinda, Balikpapan, East Kutai, West Kutai and North Penajam Paser.

In addition, according to BPBD, there are 20 areas that are classified as prone to forest and land fires in East Kalimantan.

“This pre-disaster framework places more emphasis on efforts to reduce disaster risk,” he said.

According to him, disaster risk reduction includes prevention programs, reducing vulnerability, and increasing resilience in facing potential disasters.
