ABSTRACT : In the year 2014
there were 456 disasters in Indonesia, comprising 227 natural disasters, 197
non-natural disasters and 32 social disasters. The community is expected to be
well prepared in accordance with their respective capacities, and this includes
the Civil Service Police Unit (CSPU), which must be competent in providing
emergency first aid. The aim of this study is to analyze the effect of
emergency first aid training on the competence of CSPU in providing emergency
first aid assistance in the Surakarta region. Methods: This study used a
pre-experimental technique using a pre-post test group design. The sample
consisted of 107 respondents who were recruited by total sampling. Variables in
this study were competencies in handling emergency first aid assistance
including knowledge, attitude and practice. Data were collected by
questionnaire and analysed using Wilcoxon signed-rank test with a p-value of
0.05. Results: There are significant differences in scores on knowledge,
attitudes, and practice in providing emergency first aid assistance, with a
p-value of 0.012 for knowledge, 0.000 for attitude and 0.001 for practice,
respectively. Conclusions: Emergency first aid training is urgently needed for
