at the confluence of three plates world tectonics, namely the Australasia plate, the Pacific plate, the Eurasian plate
and Philippines. This causes Indonesia to be geologically vulnerable and is one of the parts of the world that has a
complex seismonic system with a fairly high frequency of earthquakes. The potential for earthquakes, both on land
and at sea, is very high. Earthquakes with a magnitude of 6-9 Ms are common. The potential for physical and economic damage and losses due to disasters, the highest is for the threat of an earthquake. In general, the main factor is
the number of fatalities, damage, and losses incurred arising from the disaster is the lack of understanding and awareness of the community towards disaster risk in the region. This results in awareness vigilance, and preparedness in
dealing with disasters are still very not enough. The purpose of the study was to determine the level of community

preparedness from the aspect of knowledge and attitudes, early warning system, and resource mobilization were
