USARPAC soldiers share knowledge to save lives during disasters

Members of the Tentara Nasional Indonesia and the Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana (BNBP, Indonesia’s equivalent of the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency) monitor the progress of the field exercise during the seventh annual Pacific Resilience Disaster Response Exercise and Exchange, held at the International Peace and Security Center in Sentul, Indonesia, June 4. During the exercise participants respond to a scenario in which an earthquake and subsequent tsunami have devastated Padang, an area in Indonesia that has had to deal with real disasters like this in the recent past.
