Hytera Supports Indonesia’s Search and Rescue after Earthquake and Tsunami Rocked Its Central Sulawesi

JAKARTA, Indonesia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CommunicationsEquipment–To help improve collaboration efficiency in the search, rescue and
evacuation, Hytera donated communications equipment in the first minute
to Palang Merah Indonesia (PMI), the Indonesian Red Cross, following a
magnitude 7.4 earthquake and a tsunami rocked Central Sulawesi in
Indonesia on September 28, 2018. According to the National Disaster
Management Authority (BNPB) on October 4, the earthquake and the
following tsunami has caused 1558 fatalities, 2549 injuries with 70821
people displaced and 65733 houses damaged.


It is the second time Hytera supports PMI in disaster rescue and relief
operations. Ria Thahir, Head of PMI Resource Mobilization and
Partnership Division, said, “Hytera’s equipment was working well during
Lombok earthquake in August, and is now still supporting the
reconstruction at Lombok. We appreciate your fast response and what
you’ve done for Indonesian people.”

Jerry Gao, Country Manager of PT. Hytera Communications Indonesia,
expressed his condolence to the affected communities. “Hytera has been
in Indonesia for more than ten years. We have lots of clients, partners
and a team of local colleagues here. We live on the same land and
breathe the same air. It’s our obligation to support local communities
with our expertise to help them recover soon.”

The earthquake as well as the tsunami, liquefaction and landslides
triggered by the quake caused great damages to the power supply and
public communications networks in Central Sulawesi. Hytera’s innovative
emergency communications solutions, which can be deployed in a minimum
