    Indonesian Government and U.S. Pacific Command Host International
    Workshop on Disaster Response


    June 15, 2007
    The Indonesian Armed Forces Headquarters and U.S. Pacific Command are hosting an international workshop on disaster response in Jakarta from June11-15, 2007. Called MPAT TEMPEST EXPRESS-12 Staff Planning Workshop, the activity focuses on a Government of Indonesia-led response to a simulation natural disaster in western Java affecting Jakarta.
    The primary goals of the event are to better understand planning of major civilian-led humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations; improve civil-military cooperation among the various organizations involved in disaster response; build on Government of Indonesia and TNI disaster response experience and procedures; educate key planners on basic principles, tasks, and roles and responsibilities of responders to disasters; plan for support by, and the transition (departure) of, international military support in disaster relief operations; and increase familiarity with international military crisis action planning.
    The lead response organizations in the workshop are BAKORNAS PB, Indonesia’s lead emergency management agency, and the SATKORLAK Jakarta, Jakarta emergency response organization. These organizations are supported by TNI Headquarters (national level) and the KODAM (Jakarta military area command) with significant ministerial, agency, Red Cross-Red Crescent Movement and local nongovernmental support.
    Foreign governments are supporting the event with planning expertise provided by military officers from nations participating in the MPAT Program. International military support is being provided by liaison officers from 22 nations. The international military officers will offer and help coordinate the delivery of international military assistance that might be provided in a major natural disaster. The event is also supported by several UN agencies/funds/programs and international and nongovernmental organizations.
