Emergency operation posts play significant roles during emergency response. Unprepared emergency operation posts are likely to lead to poor coordination, a chaotic evacuation process, and uneven aids distribution, worsening disaster impacts. Reflecting on earthquake events in Indonesia, this paper examines emergency operation posts and equipment needed in those emergency operation posts during disaster events to improve emergency management. The present paper investigates government regulations and performs Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) in Palu, Bantul, and Surabaya to achieve the research goal. This study finds that six emergency operation posts, including Command Post, Field Post, Support Post, Associate Post, Communal Tent, and Individual Tent, are required to improve evacuation processes, multi-sectoral coordination, and aid distributions. Finally, the present study suggested that each post must be facilitated with adequate equipment, categorized into basic equipment, data collection equipment, and coordination equipment to support emergency response activities.
