General description:

It is a Sustainable Project by SCORP Cimsa Unand in improving knowledge related to disaster mitigation and evacuation and forming active cadre in SMP Negeri 4 Padang in an effort to decrease the number of casualties caused by natural disaster. The selection of targets is based on the assessment. There are also five objectives of this activity, the first one is the increased result of eighty-percent students’ test about the earthquake and tsunami, the second one is the increased result of eighty-percent students/ test about disaster evacuation and mitigation system, the third one is the increased result of eighty-percent students’ test about post disaster management. Next is the establishment of the earthquake and tsunami evacuation system

Focus area:

Disaster resilience (including prevention, preparedness and response)

Problem statement:

West Sumatra is a disaster prone area, one of the most vulnerable disasters in West Sumatra is the earthquake and tsunami, based on data from BPPD West Sumatra, West Sumatra has experienced 5 times a large earthquake with scale above 6 on the Richter scale in the last 9 years, and has claimed more than 1584 casualties. Currently, not all areas in West Sumatra that has a disaster response system and a good evacuation system.

Target groups and beneficiaries:

The target groups of this project are medical students and also junior high school students. SPORADIST will have sustainable impact for junior high students which are the establishment of earthquake and tsunami evacuation system as well as disaster response team at junior high school in Padang

Objectives and indicators of success:

The Goals : Establishment of evacuation system in elementary or junior high red area prone to earthquake disaster and 10 people disaster response team after giving training and evacuation system formation by member SCORP in period 2016-2017

Indicator of Success :
1. The increased result of the questionnaire about evacuation and disaster management system of eighty percent junior high school students
2. The increased result of post-test of eighty percent students regarding earthquake and tsunami
3. The number of students knowing the earthquake mitigation techniques
4. The establishment of an evacuation system
5. The number of disaster response team at schools
6. The number of junior schools students participating in the series of activities of SPORADIST in which they learn about post disaster management.

Methodology:

It is a Sustainable Project by SCORP Cimsa Unand in improving knowledge related to disaster mitigation and evacuation and forming active cadre in SMP Negeri 4 Padang in an effort to decrease the number of casualties caused by natural disaster. The selection of targets is based on the assessment. The members distributed questionnaires to several schools close to the beach. The result shows that JHS 4 Padang is one of the schools in the red zone near the coast, the students’ knowledge of the disaster mitigation is very low, the absence of high facilities / shelters in the school area. In this project is divided into 4 series of main activities. That is, the first intervention of the scorpion members by one of the coaches BPBD, the second is training by member scorp to disaster response team SMPN 4, the third to make disaster mitigation system together disaster response team in small working group using metaplan, and last simulation disaster earthquake and tsunami . At the first intervention on Saturday, September 17, 2016, SCORP members were provided with disaster sciences by the Pembina BPBD West Sumatra. Furthermore, this science is used as a provision for Scorp Member as trainer to JHS 4 Padang on Saturday, October 1, 2016. The material given is the same, but in this second intervention, disaster response team is shown short videos how powerful the power of tsunami to destroy a city. Disaster response team is also taught how to set up family evacuation system. In the third intervention Saturday, October 15, 2016, down again become a trainer disaster response team JHS 4 Padang. The disaster response team is invited to discuss in a small group. Each group will be asked to return to repeat the material. After that it is given a case which then all members must determine the mitigation system. The concept of this discussion uses Metaplan, so that all members can freely express their opinions and all members can participate well. Saturday, December 17, 2016 is the culmination of a series of activities, namely simulation of earthquake and tsunami. The simulation begins with a briefing in the class by each person in charge. Then simulated the earthquake. The Disaster response team will guide all new students to evacuate to the Grand Zuri Hotel shelter approximately 2-3 km from the beach. Their target time to arrive at the location is 30 minutes. This project will be followed up until the specified time.

Plans for evaluation:
