Via reviewing literature on related topics about community learning as well as disaster prevention education, and through in-depth interviewing with community leaders and experts on implementing plans for community disaster prevention, this study will construct a content of community disaster prevention learning. The content includes: 1. to shape the proper values of disaster prevention in order to establish a positive interaction between people and the environment; 2. considering community features and citizens' characteristics to construct a content of teaching material which is centered on the community, and based on the demand made by the community itself to realize citizen participation; 3. to train the skills of problem-solving and communication with others, and via the ways of community development to subsume community disaster prevention learning within the scope of ”lifelong learning” and work toward community empowerment; 4. to shape multiple incentives to learn community disaster prevention, the main cause of which is to make the community possessed of a sense of honor and participation. Domestic issues on community disaster prevention learning include: most planning of curriculum and teaching material does not act on circumstances; teacher training is not yet institutionalized, and the learning process is also lacking in instructional objectives and learning proposals; the top-down selection mechanism is deficient in spontaneous learning motivation. In addition, factors affecting community disaster prevention learning include: passive attitudes toward disasters resulting from living problems lead to low willingness to learn disaster prevention; the relatively long period that the citizens have been through without any disaster gradually lower their awareness of disaster prevention; the citizens' employment of environmental awareness and past disaster experience as the basis of disaster prevention action lowers their sensitivity to disasters; the experts' and citizens' different cognition of disaster itself as well as ways of disaster prevention impedes disaster prevention learning; other factors such as personal attitudes, social values, legal and political barriers, financial condition and ”bounded rationality” restrain motivation and awareness, impacting the efficiency of disaster prevention learning.
