Extension of 7.110MHz EmComm Frequency - Lombok Earthquake

Entering the sixth day of post-Earthquake 7 SR which shook the region in West Nusa Tenggara and Bali, emergency handling was still intensified. The emergency response period for handling the impact of earthquakes in West
Nusa Tenggara ended on 08/08/2018. However, considering the many problems in handling the impact of the earthquake, the Governor of West Nusa Tenggara finally decided to extend the 14-day emergency response period, which is calculated from August 12 to 25, 2018

Conditions in the field are still many problems, such as the still victims who have to be evacuated, refugees who have not been handled properly, the aftershocks that are still going on and even earthquakes that damage and cause casualties, and others. With the establishment of an emergency response period there is easy access for personnel deployment, resource use, budget use, procurement of logistics and equipment, and administration
so that the handling of disaster impacts becomes faster.

The number of earthquake victims continues to increase. Until Saturday (11/08/2018) recorded 387 people died.

Mr. Erdius (YBØQA) as Head of Operations and Technical Affairs on behalf of ORARI HQ has sent 1 unit of VHF Repeater and 10 VHF Handy Talkies, to facilitate communication in all fields.

That is the update.
