Jokowi Encourages Communities in Disaster Sites to Build Anti-Earthquake Houses

Indonesia is in the ring of the Pacific fire ring with a history of disasters that are not small, from the earthquake and tsunami in Aceh, the earthquake in Padang, Yogyakarta, Lombok, to the last in Palu and Donggala.

“We accept this condition, but the most important thing is to stay alert and avoid the impact of the disaster. “As said by ancestors: if you are afraid of being put in a tide, do not live on the beach,” wrote President Joko Widodo on his personal Instagram account, @jokowi, Friday (10/19/2018).

Jokowi explained that the layout and layout of the city at the points on the ring of fire must be obeyed. If a location has been marked as a disaster-prone area, then do not force it to build in that place.

“If it’s already there, I move. If you cannot move, the building must be earthquake resistant. Not building a house at will, “said Jokowi.

“In addition, it is important to train the community to be responsive to disasters so that they know what the earthquake must do, where to go, where to take refuge, and what kind of way,” said the President. (bas)
