The earthquake occurred in Yogyakarta Special Region (YSR) on May 27, 2006 has a catastrophic impact. More than 5.000 people were killed and not less than 205.000 houses were collapsed. The main reason of the tremendous impacts was that the people have no alertness to disaster. In the future a reliable disaster respond system should be set up and the people should always be reminded that an earthquake may occur unpredictably so they have to be familiarized to disaster.
