(7/8/2012)

Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that the Australian government will assist Bali in developing an effective emergency management system in order to help the island deal with future natural and manmade disasters.

The pledge of continuing and escalated cooperation in the area of disaster contingency planning follows a recent visit by Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika to Australia’s Northern Territory during which they visited medical facilities that provided critical care to many of the victims of the 2005 Bali bombing.

Reporting the Bali legislators on his recent trip, governor Pastika said: “For Bali, the most important thing from the visit to Australia is the cooperation agreed between Bali and Australia to arrange and design contingency plans to deal with disasters.”

Pastika said that a joint cooperation agreement is now in hand between Bali Sanglah General Hospital and the Royal Darwin Hospital. “We signed an agreement between Sanglah Hospital and Royal Darwin Hospital as sister hospitals. If something is happening in Bali, the Royal Darwin Hospital can help us with contingency plans. It takes only 2 hours 45 minutes to arrive at Royal Darwin from Bali by plane,” Pastika said. 



Pastika praised the facilities, trained personnel and state of emergency preparedness of the Royal Darwin Hospital. He also revealed that the Australian government has been helping Bali with its disaster contingency planning since last year. “Several members of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Red Cross were also sent to Australia to take part in disaster management training funded from the provincial budget."
