WORKSHOP – Disaster Preparation – Erika & Dillon

October 27 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us for an action-packed day of disaster preparation, appropriate for the whole family. This workshop is a hands-on adventure that will help you asses your readiness for an earthquake, eruption or any other emergency you might face in Bali.


All ages, family-friendly


  • Get a realistic sense of what you might expect in an emergency in Bali.
  • Prepare a practical go-bag that could sustain you and your loved ones in the initial stages of an emergency.
  • Use the contents of your bag in practical scenarios.
  • Create a plan that would help you re-contact each other if you were separated and lost phone contact.
  • Create an emergency shelter using local materials.


You and your household will bring a backpack or bag, packed with the things that you feel might be useful in an evacuation. We will use the contents of that bag to act out possible emergency scenarios and we will use our learnings to create unique emergency plans for each participant or household. During the workshop, we will create family reunification plans, learn to build emergency shelters and consider what our next steps would be if we were forced to unexpectedly leave our homes.


Our one-day Disaster Prep Workshop helps you and your family evaluate just how ready you are for whatever emergency might strike next. In it, you prepare a practical Go-Bag, so that you can leave your house at a moment’s notice, walk through some emergency possibilities unique to Bali and use practical, hands-on scenarios to highlight the difficulties of coping with a natural disaster or emergency.
