This study used an adapted and modified instrument for the survey. For the statistical treatment, the researcher used SPSS 20 in computing the data gathered. Results show that the respondents are aware of disaster but in terms of level of compliance, they answered moderately complied. In addition, there are significant differences in disaster awareness and level of compliance with disaster programs when grouped according to location and the number of family members.
