Abstract

This study aims to form students' alert character to face volcanic disasters. The method used in this research is the study of literature. Karo Regency is a disaster-prone area, which is the eruption of the Mount Sinabung volcano. The most effective prevention efforts to reduce the impact of disaster risk are from the education sector. The school is a conscious and planned effort developing student character through the cultivation of knowledge and skills. Disaster mitigation education is an essential need for students to reduce the impact of natural disasters both in the present and in the future. Nowadays, disaster education materials have been studied at schools in Indonesia. Although students have been taught several ways to cope with natural disasters, they still have a lack of awareness. The results obtained from this study are some efforts to foster the character of the students’disaster preparedness. So it is hoped that students can implement disaster mitigation education to reduce the number of fatalities.
