Padang is a city on the coast of Sumatra island in the province of West Sumatra that has the potential to be threatened from a tsunami originating from the Mentawai megathrust. Various attempts have been made by the Padang City Government to anticipate casualties if a tsunami really occurs. One such effort is in the form of building shelter or TES (Temporary Evacuation Sites). Unfortunately, until now the data on the capacity of existing shelter and the number of shelter needed have not been found. In addition, the maintenance of existing shelters has the potential to become a burden on the Padang city government budget. The Mayor of Padang once complained about the need for the budget to build and maintain the shelter building so that it could function properly when needed. Therefore it is necessary to conduct a study regarding the optimal amount of shelter and how to optimize its function. Determination of the optimal number of shelter begins by identifying factors that influence the determination of the location of the shelter through questionnaires and interviews. This study also examines the alternative use of shelter and maintenance techniques so that the constructed shelter can be effective and efficient according to its function but still economical or not a burden on the government budget.
