Yusutria ., Nefilinda ., Rina Febriana


Natural disasters are disasters caused by a series of natural events in the form of earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, floods, droughts, hurricanes, and landslides. Natural disasters that occur suddenly result in the limitations of the central and regional governments in overcoming these natural disasters. This encourages local communities to carry out natural disaster management on the basis of local wisdom. Local wisdom is local ideas that are wise, full of wisdom, good value embedded and followed by members of the community. Therefore students in the Geography Education Study Program STKIP PGRI Sumatera Barat, must be able to address and provide information to the public about prevention, mitigation of the impact of natural disasters. In fact students do not understand the values of local wisdom based on faith in dealing with natural disasters. Even though students have learned the values of local wisdom contained in the disaster-based Geography module based on faith in the subject of disaster geography. The purpose of this study was to determine the attitude of students of Geography Education Department STKIP PGRI Sumatera Barat in dealing with natural disasters with the values of local wisdom. This type of research is descriptive qualitative and the subject of this study is 30 students of Geography education depatrmrnt at STKIP PGRI Sumatera Barat. The instrument in this study using a questionnaire. The result of questionnaire calculation shows that the attitude of students in facing disasters with the values of local wisdom found in the Geography planning module based on faith is 38%. This means that students' understanding is still low in using local wisdom values in dealing with natural disasters.
