(1/5/2014)

The province of Bali will receive three more tsunami sirens in 2014 installed in key locations by the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BKMG) and the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPNB).

The chief of BPNB for Bali, I Gede Made Jaya Seratberana told Republika.co.id on Tuesday, December 24, 2013: “There were actually 10 locations that we surveyed, five in Bali’s west and five in the east. All 10 locations should, ideally, be equipped with tsunami sirens, but only three have received approval from Jakarta.”

The three new sirens granted by BMKG and BPNB will be installed near Serangan Island (Denpasar), Tanah Lot (Tabanan regency) and Seririt (Buleleng regency).

These will supplement six existing tsunami sirens installed in Bali on Pantai Matahari Terbit (Sanur), Tanjung Benoa at the BTDC, Kedonganan, Kuta and Seminyak.

At the three new locations, as with the existing alarms, maps and signs showing evacuation routes will also be installed.

The care and maintenance of the new sirens will be paid by Jakarta for one year after which that costs moves to the provincial budget of Bali.

Other areas identified in the survey at considerable risk of tsunami and needing an early warning system are Pantai Lebih (Gianyar), Nusa Penida (Klungkung regency), Pantai Jasi (Karangasem), Yeh Gangga (Tabanan) and the southern shoreline at Jembrana.

At 10 am on the 26th day of each month the sirens in place across Bali are sounded and tested.

According to Jaya, funds have been budget to establish a temporary evacuation zone near Serangan for use in the event of a tsunami.
