Bali Tsunami Evacuation Plan Resources & Tsunami Ready Hotels in Bali

Bali Tsunami Resources & Information

The highly respected volcanologist Dr. Janine Krippner (@janinekrippner) recently had a request on Twitter about information pertaining to Tsunami Evacuation plans in Bali, specifically for the Nusa Dua region & environs. While we continue to get direct Evacuation Plans from the specific hotels, I thought I’d take this opportunity to write up a quick reference post that people looking for more information might find useful.

Tsunami Ready Certified Hotels in Bali

There is a resource online called Tsunami Ready www.tsunamiready.com which is a website auditing hotels with Tsunami Ready certificates and “providing a standard and a wide range of resources, advice and training to empower especially the tourism industry to prepare for tsunami in order to prevent and reduce damage to life and property as much as possible.

From their website:
“Feel safe and secure while enjoying your beach holiday. Don’t worry about tsunami because you are in good hands. ‘Tsunami Ready’ hotels are prepared. They are connected to all relevant tsunami early warning services and they have proven to have implemented a high safety standard. Look out for the ‘Tsunami Ready’ hotels seal when booking your holiday!”

Tsunami Ready conducts a training period and on-site audit for hotels in order to obtain their certicate. If the hotel passes Tsunami Ready’s training & audit, they are permitted to use the “Tsunami Ready” logo in their marketing materials — a list of the current hotels with the certification are listed here:

Safety Procedures for Tsunami Evacuation Bali

And lastly, some safety information for you.

Procedures for Tsunami Evacuation in Tanjung Benoa

The following procedures have been agreed upon between representatives from Tanjung Benoa and adjacent hotels to facilitate temporary evacuation before and during tsunami events in southern Bali:

  1. Get prepared – long before something happens
    Study the evacuation plan and get familiar with the evacuation procedures
    Discuss procedures within your family and neighborhood
    Participate in drills and information events
  2. If you feel an earthquake – protect yourself
    Don’t panic!
    Drop, cover and hold!
  3. After an earthquake, be aware that a tsunami may follow
    Don’t wait for an official warning. Leave the beach immediately as a measure of precaution!
    Prepare yourself for an imminent evacuation!
    Listen to the radio for further information and pay attention to the
    siren!
  4. The sound of the siren is the official call for evacuation
    When the siren sounds, go directly to the hotel that has been assigned as shelter area for your Banjar
    Hotel staff will be ready to receive people from the Banjar assigned to the hotel
    Follow the instructions of hotel staff – they will guide you to the shelter areas
    After the first tsunami wave, more waves are likely to come!
    Wait for an “All Clear” message before leaving shelter
    Pay attention to natural warning signs
    If the water retreats quicker and further than during normal tides, a tsunami is imminent to strike
    A strong wind or a roaring sound may be observed prior to the arrival of tsunami waves
    If you observe any of these signs, look for shelter immediately!
