BUMN Minister, Erick Thohir said, "We coordinate with BNPB to be able to assist the community in restoring their respective environmental conditions. In addition, several SOEs also handed over assistance ranging from logistics to medical devices. This is in accordance with the direction of the President so that we coordinate actively in saving the community. "

The SOE Cross Flood Management Team for the Tangerang Region established the Main Command Post at Airport City in Teluknaga sub-district, or is located behind Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

The Main Command Post will distribute assistance to flood affected communities in 5 districts namely Batu Ceper, Cipondoh, Neglasari, Teluk Naga and Kosambi.

We also send personnel such as doctors and personnel with other special abilities to the location to always help the flood victims. It is hoped that the situation will soon return to normal, "said Muhammad Awaluddin.
