Objectives: Current research is intended to propose a new model for preparedness post-disaster awareness based on learning community approach, namely “Learning Community Cycle Model for Disaster Awareness (LC2MDA)”. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: This learning community model was developed by using the research and development method in Lampung province, Indonesia, specifically in the Lampung Barat and the Pesisir Barat districts. The subjects of the research were the students, parents, and teachers. Students were treated as the object for the LC2MDA model, the teachers had a role in facilitating the students achieving the expected set of competence, while the parents took part in giving inputs and considerations to for the school and teachers in integrating disaster literacy into the local curriculum and played a role as active observers of the teaching learning process. Findings: This paper highlights an adapted learning community model. Based on the result of qualitative investigations, it was found that the learning community approach was potentially effective in facilitating students’ disaster literacy, attitudes, and skills for preparing post-disaster recovery and resilience. The role shift needed to embed and to extend the optimalization of teacher-parents involvement in the school programs which was achieved through positive supports and commitment to engage in school development program. Application: LC2MDA can be considered as an effective model to recover the post-disaster psychological condition of the students and form the students’ psychological resilience to the possibility of the aftershocks.
