The geographical location of West Sulawesi Province is right within the tectonic path of the ring of fire. The area of 810,405 km is just above the Saddang cesarian, active cesarian so that it has a high vulnerability to tectonic earthquakes and other disasters. The research purpose aimed at investigating the disaster mitigation policy of the Saddang cesarian area. The research method used was a qualitative descriptive approach aimed at providing a complete picture. Data collection techniques were collected through the techniques of observation, document studies, interviews with 2 key informants; Head of BPBD West Sulawesi Province, Head of BPBD Majene Regency, 4 main informants; Secretary of BPBD, Head of Prevention and Preparedness, Head of Rehabilitation and Reconstruction, Sulbar Provincial Health Office Employee, 2 additional community informants. The research results indicated that firstly, the standards, and policy objectives were implemented by passive and active mitigation in the form of disaster risk assessment of West Sulawesi (2016-2021). Secondly, policy resources are still minimal, such as health worker, health facility, vital facility for mitigation, and budget availability.
