Abstract

The disaster mitigation education aims to impart knowledge and skills in reducing the risk disasters, in other words, it is a preventive measure to reduce the impacts of disasters by building the awareness through education and increasing the capability of facing the disasters with a specific application in science and technology. The disaster mitigation education needs to be given early in order to create a society with disaster awareness.In various conditions, most people are not aware that their occupied areas are prone to disasters. It is presumably due to the lack of socialization of the issues related to disasters either through formal, non-formal and informal. Education should be able to substantially contribute improving the conditions in the community. The strategies of the disaster mitigation education for elementary school students is conducted through the integration of the disaster mitigation education into the curriculum which contains the class activities such as, using media, picture stories, simulations and some multimedia of disaster risk reduction applied in the learning with suitable themes and the developmental stages of elementary school students; and outside the class activities, such as study tour, simulation, mitigation socializations. Creative and innovative approaches are necessary to create a meaningful and fun learning in the integration of mitigation education in order to achieve the learning objectives. It can also give the skills to reduce the disaster risks from the early age in order to create a society with disaster awareness.
