The Aceh Provincial Social Service is located on the street of Sultan Iskandar Muda No. 49 Banda Aceh which is a regional apparatus as an element of implementation in the field of social welfare based in Banda Aceh. In 2004, the Aceh Provincial Social Service building was one of those affected by the earthquake and tsunami disaster. Many rooms were destroyed, especially the first floor, during the rehabilitation and reconstruction, the Aceh Provincial Social Service building was only repaired on the first floor, so that many rooms on the second floor had cracked floors and even some rooms when someone walked the floor swayed. This makes the staff of the Aceh Provincial Social Service have anxieties about the resilience of the building when thinking about earthquake during work. This study aims to analyze the level of anxiety and preparedness of employees against earthquake disasters, find out the relationship between the variables of anxiety and preparedness, and develop alternative strategies to increase the level of preparedness. The data used in this study uses primary data obtained from observations, interviews, and distributing questionnaires and secondary data obtained through reference books, journals, and the Central Aceh Statistics Agency. Respondents in this study were 68 people. This study uses descriptive qualitative and quantitative methods, regression tests to determine the relationship between the two variables, and SWOT analysis to develop alternative strategies. The results showed that the total score on the level of anxiety possessed by the employees of the Aceh Provincial Social Service was 2,761 in the moderate category, while the total preparedness score was 2,962, which was a high category in facing disaster preparedness. The results of the regression test through ANOVA tables are valued at 0,000 with a 95% confidence level, which means the relationship between the two significant variables has a relationship of 21.9%. The results of the SWOT analysis show that the strategy needed is a strategy of enhancement. For this reason, four strategies were adopted using the SWOT analysis including drafting an annual routine activity agenda in socialization and drill against earthquake disasters in Dinsos by involving agencies and organizations in Aceh engaged in disaster mitigation.
