Rainy Season Threats: Flood Mitigation

Rainy Season Threats: Flood Mitigation

Indonesia, as an archipelagic country with a tropical climate, is vulnerable to the threat of floods during the rainy season. The rainy season in Indonesia typically occurs between November and March, with moderate to high rainfall intensity. Topographical factors, such as abundant low-lying areas and a complex river system, make certain regions in Indonesia prone to floods. This situation is exacerbated by rapid urbanization and a lack of adequate water management infrastructure.

Floods can pose threats to both human life and physical infrastructure, significantly impacting your business operations. Floods not only endanger valuable assets but can also harm a company’s finances due to constrained mobility and community activities.

How can Nawakara assist you in mitigating the risks of floods during the rainy season?

Flood Mitigation

Handling adverse emergency situations can result in the loss of lives, property, and environmental damage, which can be mitigated as early as possible. Therefore, an effective security management system should include a combination of emergency response measures to reduce the adverse impacts of such emergencies.

At Nawakara, we not only design emergency response measures but also go beyond by having an experienced Emergency Response Team (ERT) that can handle emergency situations in various regions across Indonesia.

Nawakara’s Emergency Response Team (ERT)

Nawakara’s Emergency Response Team serves as the frontline in addressing flood disasters. Equipped with specialized knowledge and skills, this team responds quickly to emergency calls, provides evacuation assistance to victims, and escorts them to safer locations.

As of now, Nawakara’s Emergency Response Team consists of 34 members certified by the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas). This team possesses excellent coordination and communication abilities with all stakeholders in Indonesia.

In 2022, Nawakara became the only Private Security Service Company (BUJP) mandated and officially appointed by Basarnas to conduct Search and Rescue (SAR) training for external or public individuals, leading to certification from Basarnas.

All personnel in Nawakara’s Emergency Response Team are trained to handle various evacuation processes, including but not limited to flood evacuation, fire evacuation (due to smoke impact), forest and volcanic eruption evacuation, and riot evacuation.

Evacuation Process

When water levels rise, and the threat of floods becomes imminent, Nawakara’s ERT plays a crucial role in the emergency response chain. With ERT members ready to be deployed to disaster response locations, Nawakara provides a holistic solution to minimize the impact of disasters.

In the evacuation process, Nawakara’s Emergency Response Team typically performs two main tasks to assist victims. Firstly, emergency evacuation involves moving people from potentially hazardous locations to safer places, such as safe houses or hospitals. Secondly, security escorting involves ERT personnel accompanying accident/disaster victims to reduce anxiety and maintain calmness during the journey to a safer location.

Collaboration in Flood Mitigation

Emergency conditions such as the threat of floods can be caused by both human and natural factors, posing risks to human lives, property damage, and environmental destruction. Natural disasters like floods represent abnormal conditions that are challenging to predict. Moreover, the timing of evacuations is crucial in emergency response situations, necessitating efficient and effective handling.

The importance of collaboration with relevant entities, such as Basarnas and other disaster management agencies, is key to Nawakara’s success in addressing the flood disaster. Through synergy, Nawakara can provide more efficient and coordinated emergency response services.
