There were 30 participants in this research. Thematic and descriptive analysis tests were used to analyze the dataResults: The results show that there are four important things in developing an emergency system in the university area which are a distribution of operational area, communication system, Developing emergency system, and sustainable improvement of first responder capacity. The results of the competency assessment show that the average knowledge level of the participants is 79.5, and their psychomotor level is above 80%.Conclusion: First aid training is important to given for first responder to improve safety in the university. Keywords: Public Safety Center, First Responder, Emergency.
