The high potential impact of an earthquake in Surabaya City increases the urgency of the city to prepare for the emergency due to the earthquake event. One of them is to equip the landowners with building emergency infrastructures to ensure disaster survivors can meet daily needs during emergencies. The proposed emergency infrastructures are building emergency utilities, emergency facilities, and building evacuation systems. The proposed emergency infrastructures should also be accessed by the building residents and all the communities surrounding the buildings. Those additional proposed emergency infrastructures complement current building regulations in Surabaya. Therefore, modifying current building regulations may fasten up the city in providing emergency infrastructures on a city scale.
