TAWAU, 2 Dis (Bernama) -- Sukarelawan, termasuk anggota pertubuhan bukan

kerajaan (NGO), memain peranan penting mengurangkan kesan ke atas masyarakat

apabila berlaku sesuatu bencana, kata Pengarah Bencana Negara, Majlis

Keselamatan Negara (MKN), Leftenan Kolonel Mohd Sakri Hussin.

Beliau berkata sehubungan dengan itu sukarelawan dan anggota NGO perlu

diberi pendedahan dan kefahaman dalam pelbagai aspek bencana supaya mereka mampu

melaksanakan peranan secara tersusun dan berkesan apabila diperlukan.

"Mereka harus diberi pendedahan tentang perkara yang perlu mereka lakukan

semasa berdepan dengan bencana," katanya ketika membentangkan kertas kerja

''Peranan dan Tanggungjawab Komuniti Serta Pertubuhan Bukan Kerajaan (NGO) Dalam

Pengurusan Bencana'' pada Bengkel Pengurusan Bencana Bersama NGO di sini hari ini

yang hadiri kira-kira 150 peserta.

Menurut Mohd Sakri, apabila berlaku bencana pihak berkuasa akan membentuk

jawatankuasa dan mengagihkan tugas manakala NGO yang berhasrat membantu dari

segi aset, logistik dan komunikasi perlu melapor diri ke Pusat Kawalan Operasi

Bencana (PKOB) di daerah masing-masing.

Katanya, pihak NGO perlu berbuat demikian supaya sebarang gerak kerja

bencana dapat diselaraskan secara optimum.

MKN-SUKARELAWAN 2 (AKHIR) TAWAU

Mohd Sakri berkata NGO yang mempunyai ahli ramai dan berminat boleh

menyumbang tenaga dalam khidmat kebajikan seperti memasak, menghidang makanan,

mengagih barangan keperluan dan menjalankan pendaftaran bagi Jabatan Kebajikan

Masyarakat.

Katanya, pihak yang berhasrat memberi bantuan barangan dan makanan juga

dikehendaki melapor diri dengan Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat di daerah

masing-masing.

Menurut Mohd Sakri, NGO yang berminat membantu memberi rawatan kecemasan

pula perlu mempunyai kelayakan dalam bidang perubatan dan bergerak di bawah

penyelarasan pasukan perubatan kecemasan (hospital) atau klinik.

"NGO yang ingin membantu di segi kewangan perlu menyalurkannya kepada

tabung-tabung yang ditubuhkan kerajaan negeri atau Kumpulan Wang Amanah Bantuan

Bencana Negara (KWABBN) di ibu pejabat Majlis Keselamatan Negara.

"Ini bagi membolehkan bantuan tersebut direkod, diurus dan dilaporkan dengan

baik melalui jawatankuasa pengurusan bencana di setiap negeri," katanya.

Terdahulu, Setiausaha MKN Sabah, Rodzi Mohd Saad berkata, pihaknya akan

terus meningkatkan usaha mengadakan lebih banyak bengkel seumpama itu bagi

menyedarkan masyarakat tentang peranan komuniti ketika menghadapi bencana.
