INDUSTRY.co.id - Depok - University of Indonesia (UI) sent a relief team for earthquake disaster in Lombok totaling seven people with the aim of mapping the initial location of the disaster, assisting medical services and joining the Team of the Indonesian Branch of Internal Medicine Specialist Association (PAPDI) Lombok Branch.

"This is a quick response from us to the disaster in Lombok which has resulted in fatalities of up to 99 people," said the Director of the Directorate of Research and Community Service (DRPM) UI, Prof. Heri Hermansyah, in Depok, Tuesday (07/08/2018)

According to him, after the assessment team departed to see the location of the disaster and map the need for assistance, the big team will then depart from the UI campus on 10 August 2018.

The Lombok Earthquake Caring Team was coordinated by UI DRPM.

The UI Peduli team will concentrate on two clusters, namely health clusters related to medical services and refugee and protection clusters related to sanitation and clean water, psychosocial services and identification of buildings that are still standing.

UI Peduli also sends general practitioners and internal medicine specialists as well as qualified Student Regiment teams ready for the emergency response phase.

In addition, FTUI lecturer, Dr. Chairul Hudaya also provided assistance in the form of Electric Tubes (TaLis) from his innovations to help distribute electricity to disaster areas in Lombok.

With this tool, electricity distribution can be done easily without relying on cables and transmission of electricity generation.

The UI Peduli team that departs will carry out the process of mapping problems in an area through field surveys, interviews, and questionnaires which will later become the basis for medium and long-term planning and become the foundation for the next team in preparing the needs of the community at the disaster site.

UI Peduli as reported by Antara is a community service movement that aims to help solve community problems through the application of science, technology and socio-cultural.

The program that has been carried out from 2011 has lowered the team to various disaster areas in Indonesia such as the Aceh earthquake, Jakarta floods, or the eruption of the volcano in Bali.

"This program is a form of UI's real contribution in responding to the nation's problems," he said.
