The Secretary of Bali Provincial Government, Dewa Indra, confirmed that following the latest Decree published on Monday (18/4), the authorities must turn on all emergency sirens.
This is part of the natural disaster drill in all Bali regions on Tuesday morning (26/4). The government aims to commemorate the annual Disaster Preparedness Day and practice disaster evacuation plans.
