jpnn.com, JAKARTA – Operational director of the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) Brigadier General Rasman hopes that the weather in the waters of the Thousand Islands, Jakarta, this Thursday (14/1), can support SAR operations for the incident of the downing of the Sriwijaya Air SJ-182 aircraft.
Rasman admitted that he had received a weather forecast report in the waters of the Thousand Islands this Thursday. In the report, the clouds were in clear condition starting at noon Thursday.
“Hopefully our hope is that the weather will be friendly today, if you look around, it is quite cloudy and based on the forecast this morning, this morning there will be light rain around Jakarta. However, hopefully, sunny cloudy afternoon,” said Rasman when met by the media crew at the JICT dock. 2, Jakarta, Thursday.
According to Rasman, divers will conduct an underwater search when the weather in the waters of the Thousand Islands is favorable. At least 268 divers were alerted to carry out SAR operations.
“Hopefully colleagues are still enthusiastic and their condition is still maintained. The mechanism to regulate the rhythm of the dives has been carried out by each unit so that we hope that our ability will be maintained as much as possible,” he said.
Furthermore, Rasman said, today’s SAR operation was focused on three things. Namely looking for victims of the crash of Sriwijaya Air, aircraft debris, and a black box type cockpit voice recorder (CVR).
“Then the focus of the search is not prioritized on one object. So we prioritize victims, we prioritize CVR, we also prioritize debris,” he said.
“Therefore, we share it in this team. There are those who specifically look for debris, victims, and also CVR. That’s the mechanism in that arrangement so that we can maximize it,” he said.
