Sampling technique in this study is the total sampling of all trained lay people assisted Surakarta Health Polytechnic with number of 120 people. The t test results showed that the value t = 10.393> t table (0.05, df 39) = 8.750 with a confidence level of 95% indicates α = 0.00 <0.05. It can be concluded that there is a significant difference in effectiveness between the simulation of indoor and outdoor disaster preparedness in improving the competence of first aid in the emergency response among trained lay people in Surakarta Municipality.
