Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

As a country located in the ring of fire, the Republic of Indonesia is one of the countries with the highest potential status of disasters in the world and causes great material and moral damage. This phenomenon is one of the big challenges in achieving national development goals. Among the efforts to reduce the impact of disasters is to increase disaster preparedness by all elements of society, especially in the education sector through the application of the concept of Environment and Disaster Mitigation-Based School (SWALIBA). The big goal to be achieved from the application of the SWALIBA concept is to shape the attitude and mentality of disaster preparedness from an early age. This research focuses on measuring the level of disaster preparedness for elementary and middle school students in the central part of Java who have applied the SWALIBA concept. The method used in this study is structured interviews and systematic measurements using a questionnaire to analyze and find scientific correlations between school strategy variables and the level of student disaster preparedness. The results showed that although students' perception of disaster preparedness began to take shape, it had not yet reached the expected level of disaster preparedness.
