Disaster events both natural and non-natural factors such as epidemics can occur anytime and anywhere, which can affect communities and individuals. This natural or human-caused event or series of events can result in human casualties and suffering. Losses caused by disasters can be minimized or prevented if people's understanding of the disaster itself is sufficient, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Purpose: This activity is to conduct disaster mitigation training in the conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic for teachers at the Kanzul Ulum Islamic Boarding School, Kelurahan, in Pasie Nan Tigo, Koto Tangah District, Padang City. Activity target: the people of Pasie Nan Tigi Koto are able to carry out disaster mitigation and evacuation in the event of an earthquake followed by a tsunami, rising sea levels and waves. Method: activities in the form of lectures and exercises that begin with the distribution of masks to all participants involved in the activity, and filling out questionnaires on Covid-19 prevention and disaster management. After delivering the material, it was followed by a discussion on Covid-19 prevention, as well as drills on disaster mitigation and victim evacuation. The results of the activity were an increase in disaster mitigation and evacuation capabilities as well as an increase in participants' awareness in implementing health protocols for the prevention of Covid-19. Most of the participants' understanding of Covid-19 prevention and disaster management had increased, as evidenced by the increase in the number of correct questionnaire answers during the post-test compared to the pre-test from 50% to 80%. In addition, participants' skills have also increased regarding disaster mitigation, the implementation of evacuation techniques when a disaster occurs and how to evacuate victims when the disaster has subsided. Conclusion: Every individual left behind in a disaster-prone area needs to receive knowledge and training skills in disaster mitigation and evacuation techniques during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Plastic is a global problem; plastic pollution production reaches 350 million tons annually. This plastic pollution will be degraded into microplastic. This microplastic will pollute the environment and negatively impacted health if exposed too much. Recent research has found microplastics in clothes, toys, and even food. The Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Andalas conducts outreach to the public to enhance the general public's understanding of microplastics and their impact on health. The outreach activity began with filling out a pre-test to assess the public's understanding of microplastics. Followed by education about microplastic exposure, the dangers of microplastics, and education about a healthy lifestyle to reduce sources of microplastic exposure. The event ended with filling out a post-test by participants. Paired t-test analysis on pre-test and post-test data showed an increase in public understanding regarding microplastics, sources of exposure, health impacts and ways to reduce microplastic exposure. Based on these results, it can be concluded that the provision of public service can increase public understanding regarding the sources of microplastics and their impact on health and encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle that minimizes exposure to microplastics.

Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are synthetic chemicals added to cosmetics for their waterproof property to obtain a long-lasting application. PFAS is highly persistent, hence called the forever chemicals. This community outreach was aimed to educate the public on PFAS exposure through waterproof cosmetics and its health implications. Our webinar was attended by 84 people, 50 of whom responded to the pre-and post-test. An expert delivered the presentation of the educational content. There was an increase in attendees’ test scores from 56.4±21.3 to 88.4±19.0 (mean±SD; paired t-test, p<0.05). The webinar improved attendees’ knowledge of PFAS exposure from waterproof cosmetics and its potential effects on health.
