Abstract

The city of Cilegon in Banten Province, Indonesia is selected as a site of this study. The city locates in the western edge of Java Islands and is known as one of the most famous and significant heavy industrial zones in Indonesia. Cilegon is potentially exposed both to natural and industrial hazards so that we can consider it as a suitable place for studying NATECH (NAtural-Hazard triggered TECHnological disasters) disaster situations. The Indonesian government indicates the presence of seismic gap in the Sunda Strait and the associated tsunami risk. Large-scale facilities of chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas industries stand in coastal areas in Cilegon. The industry and its surrounding communities can be affected by combination of the natural and industrial disasters. In Cilegon, we aim at strengthening capacity of the education section in the Cilegon city government and the school principals and teachers. Our preliminary implementation and survey reveal that knowledge and understanding of teachers are very limited. We will combine existing research findings from both of industrial accidents and tsunami, and develop educational materials.
