The National Search and Rescue Team demonstrated their prowess to hundreds of delegates at a meeting of experts on search and rescue methods by utilizing the international satellite system - Cospas Sarsat  during a conference held in Bali on Thursday. June 19. 2014.

The simulated rescue involved a scenario in which an aircraft crashed on Kuta Beach in Bali.

Quoted by Metrobali.com, the director of training and operations for the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas), Brigadier General Tatang Zainudi, said: “We showed the delegates in a simulation how we train our officers in case of an emergency, such as an aircraft crash.”

He went on to explain that the simulation depicted how various agencies can quickly cooperate in handling disasters requiring the evacuation of victims.

Spectators witnessing the emergency drill saw passengers evacuate from a “crashed airliner” on fire on the western side of Bali’s airport runway.

During the simulation, the Cospas Sarsat system transmitted an emergency signal at started a chain of coordinated efforts to lend assistance both from sea and land.

In the subject drill, two helicopters and a small fleet of rubber boats were dispatched to help evacuate the passengers.

Tatang explained that the simulation was carried out in a manner to closely duplicate an actual emergency.
