COMMITEE MEMBERS

The membership of this committee consists of various internal departments of PPj and the support team also consists of PPj staff according to their respective expertise. The main goal is to provide immediate assistance and solutions to disasters/incidents that can be resolved within PPj's own logistical capacity and capability. Among the disasters/incidents managed by this team are flash floods, fallen trees, lake pollution, accidents and so on.

If it is found that the disaster requires the mobilization of resources from outside agencies, this matter will be taken to a higher level, namely the District Disaster Management Committee (JPBD) for further action.
