Preparedness


code

Apa yang akan Anda lakukan jika tiba-tiba di tempat tinggal Anda terjadi bencana gempa bumi? Tahukah Anda mana saja jalur evakuasi? Hal ini memerlukan peran pemerintah untuk dapat menyiapkan segala sesuatunya dalam rangka memberi informasi yang benar dan tepat kepada masyarakat luas.

Preparedness atau kesiapsiagaan adalah salah-satu unsur penting dalam menghadapi suatu kondisi darurat bencana di samping mitigation (pengurangan kerusakan), response (tindakan segera setelah bencana), dan recovery (pemulihan kembali seperti keadaan semula pra bencana).

Contoh kesiapsiagaan untuk kondisi darurat dapat dilihat di  Code Maroon Emergency Notification Service Texas A&M University. Di sana segala media dipakai untuk berkomunikasi dengan civitas akademik dan bahkan masyarakat luas:

“Code Maroon is Texas A&M University’s emergency notification system that gives the University the ability to communicate health and emergency information– by SMS text message, Texas A&M Email (Neo), KAMU-FM radio, campus cable television and Emergency Alert System radios. Texas A&M students, faculty and staff can also sign up to receive alerts via text message. Code Maroon emergency alerts will automatically be sent to all Texas A&M University Email accounts ending in “@neo.tamu.edu.” Anyone can receive alerts by subscribing to the Code Maroon RSS feed or following “TAMUCodeMaroon” on Twitter.”

Kapan kita sesiap mereka?
