Increased preparedness is an essential element of pro-active disaster risk reduction management. Many factors affect the preparedness of adolescents in dealing with disaster management, including knowledge, attitudes, disaster preparedness training, and self-efficacy. The purpose of this study was to determine what factors influence the preparedness of adolescents to mitigation capability. Preparedness is a series of activities carried out to anticipate disasters through organizing and through appropriate and effective steps which are grouped into four parameters, namely knowledge and attitudes, emergency planning, warning systems and resource mobilization. This type of correlational research in this study uses a cross sectional approach. The population in this study was 620 people with a sample of 229 people. Sampling technique was conducted by using purposive sampling and cluster random sampling, the instrument is declared valid and reliable. Collecting data was by using questionnaires and statistical analysis using simple linear regression and multiple linear regression. The results showed that there was a significant effect of knowledge on preparedness (p-value =0.000), attitude towards preparedness (p-value, 0.000), training on preparedness (p-value= 0000), selfefficacy on preparedness (p-value, 0.000).
