Disaster management is one important planning, responsibility and action to be considered not only by students but even teachers. In relation to the Philippine schools’ vulnerability to disasters, the study intends to evaluate capability level of the teachers of Sta. Teresita District as regards their preparedness for school-based disaster. It is needed to be understood more by the teachers for them to execute it well and even on how teachers would address different calamities and hazard that may happen in school and community. Based on the foregoing findings, the following conclusions were drawn: Majority of the respondents have attended limited number of first aid trainings and simulation exercises relative to disaster preparedness. Teachers are highly capable of preparing for natural disasters but moderately capable for human induced disasters. This paper primarily suggests the conduct of similar study to include respondents from other locales. That way, a clearer view of the capability levels for preparedness for educators may be established. Furthermore, the nature of this study might even be replicated among other schools in the different cities and municipalities of the country.
