Keeping Ahead of the Wave

Benoa Hotels and Local Citizens Cooperate to Save Lives and Become 'Tsunami Ready.'


Bali News: Keeping Ahead of the Wave

(9/19/2009)

On Thursday, September 10, 2009, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed at the Ramada Benoa Hotel between the local community and Tanjung Benoa tourism industries to make the small peninsula just north of the Nusa Dua Complex "tsunami ready."

An initiative of GTZ (German Technical Cooperation)-GITEWS (German-Indonesian Cooperation for Tsunami Early Warning System) and Bali Hotels Association [BHA] and assisted by the Indonesian Red Cross - the project has created a potentially life-saving framework for Tanjung Benoa in the event of a tsunami. A flat and very low-lying peninsula exposed directly to the Indian Ocean, the community of Tanjung Benoa could offer no "high ground" for local resident seeking safety if the tsunami siren sounded, warning of an imminent inbound wave.

The obvious solution close at hand was to devise a system that would provide immediate quick access to the multi-storied hotels built at Tanjung Benoa where, conceivably, people on the upper floors during a tsunami would be spared the fatal consequences of a tsunami attack.

The MoU just concluded provides for a joint evacuation plan, a evacuation trigger, evacuation procedures and codes of conduct. Commencing immediately, nine Tanjung Benoa hotels will open their doors to the community at risk in case of an official tsunami alarm being sounded.

The initiative is viewed as a good example on community cooperation in disaster risk reduction, serving as a template for future 'tsunami ready' plans in Indonesia.

The Tanjung Benoa Tsunami Preparedness team partners are the Bali Hotels Association [BHA] and The Segara Hotel, Benoa Rose Residence, Benoa Palm, Ramada Benoa Hotel, Rasa Sayang Hotel, The Bali Khama Hotel, Puri Panca Setia Hotel, Club Bali Mirage, Grand Bali Mirage Hotel , Kelurahan Tanjung Benoa, the Indonesian Red Cross, GTZ-GITEWS, and the Indonesian Department of Culture and Tourism.
