Cilegon City is highly vulnerable to not only industrial disasters but also natural disasters, such as volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and earthquakes, hereafter referred to as complex disasters. This is a descriptive study, which aims to show the contingency plan in place for these complex disasters in Cilegon City. The data is qualitative and was collected through interviews with key persons from the institutions responsible for complex disasters, such as the Planning Agency (BAPPEDA), the Disaster Management Agency (BPBD), the District Health Office (Dinkes) and the District Social Affairs Office (Dinsos) in the City of Cilegon. Information was also gathered from the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) and the Search and Rescue Agency (Pos SAR), both in Cilegon City. BPBD was established in 2015 under City Law Number 5/2015 (Perda No 5/2015). BPBD acts as the disaster management coordinator in its administrative region, whereas the city secretary (known as SEKDA) acts as their incident commander. BPBD also acts as a link to the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB). Although the city government has institutional arrangements for complex disasters, we observed some gaps in their contingency plan. The different agencies have different perceptions, and no general consensus exists on the priorities. For example, although assembly points for evacuations were determined, some of them can no longer be used. However, some district offices do not share this latest situation.
