INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta, - Head of the Center for Data, Information and Public Relations of the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said the emergency response status for handling the Lombok earthquake was declared to end on Saturday (08/25/2018).

"Furthermore, it will continue with the emergency transition phase to recovery," Sutopo said through a written message received in Jakarta on Friday (08/24/2018)

Sutopo said the termination of the emergency response status was agreed at a coordination meeting at the Lombok Earthquake Handling Emergency Response Command Post in Tanjung, North Lombok Regency on Friday.

Emergency transition status to recovery is still being discussed for handling the impact of the Lombok earthquake, which will be determined by the Governor of West Nusa Tenggara through a decree.

"The emergency transition phase to recovery is still in a state of emergency. This is an administrative matter in accordance with Government Regulation Number 21 of 2008 concerning Implementation of Disaster Management," explained Sutopo.

According to him, an explanation of Article 23 Paragraph (1) of the Regulation, which is meant by the status of a disaster emergency, is from the status of emergency alert, emergency response and emergency transition to recovery.

Emergency transition status to recovery is a condition when emergency handling is temporary or permanent based on technical studies from the authorized agency.

"The aim is that vital infrastructure facilities and socio-economic activities of the community will immediately function, which will be carried out from the emergency response to the rehabilitation and reconstruction phase," Sutopo said.

During the emergency transition period, assistance in fulfilling advanced needs that have not been completed during the emergency response can be continued, such as shelter for people whose homes have been destroyed and lost due to landslides.

The emergency transition period is also to immediately restore vital functions of facilities and infrastructure, costs for replacing land, buildings and community crops, clean water needs and sanitation, food, clothing, health services and basic needs after the emergency response ends.
