Mount Agung
Mount Agung - Karangasem - Deputy Chief of Bali Regional Police, Brig. Gen. I Gede Alit Widana appealed to foreign tourists not to climb and secretly climbed to the top of Mount Agung, because the mountain as high as 3114 meters above sea level is in critical phase.

"I ask the tourists to obey the appeal of our officers and the government, because the situation of Mount Agung is still very dangerous and do not steal the opportunity to ride the mountain through the mouse that we can not monitor," said Alit Widana when met at Observation Post Mount Agung, Rendang Village, Friday (1/12/2017)

If tourists enter through the path, he continued, when something happens that the officer does not want to do evacuation, because the location is in the wilderness, so that tourists are expected to obey the appeal of its members and local government officials.

For the deployment of police personnel alerted to help all the needs of refugees and evacuation routes, continued Widana, prepared as many as 3,000 personnel in all areas of Bali.

"For the ranks of the Bali Regional Police alone we mobilize 1750 personnel to help evacuate in case of eruption of Mount Agung," he said as quoted by Antara.

If later eruptions are large enough, Bali will get help from all police officers throughout Indonesia with full strength with its own specialization.

For evacuation facilities and infrastructure, Bali Police alerted 1,000 double cabin cars from all police agencies. "In the deployment of these personnel, will be divided back into four zones," he said.

He said that for the zone in question is the North Bali route for evacuation of refugees to Buleleng Regency if there is a bigger eruption, West Bali route to Kabupate Bangli and Klungkung.

"Because President Joko Widodo has mandated that there should be no casualties," he said.
