This research used the descriptive qualitative method with an in-depth interview, observation, and documentation to collect data. The informants were collected as represented disaster mitigation institutions from Banyumas government and people who live in affected natural disaster areas. The result of this research shows that as a district that frequently stricken by disaster, Banyumas government already gave several things to prevent the casualty. The preventive action that government did such as the installation of an early warning system technology, socialization about thedisaster, even regular security about the current situation. Communication regarding disaster does not leave the traditional communication media that already use by Banyumas society since long time ago. The traditional media are folk performance such as Gagrak Banyumasan shadows puppet and Banyumasan Gendingand. The folk performance could be as a complement media to educate people about the disaster, it would be easier for Banyumas society to understand because of the local language. For the tools of traditional communication media in this community such as kenthongan and bedug could be used as an early warning replacement, especially if the early warning system technology could not running well. The sound from these tools also could be symbolized security situation in this community. Basically, all of the traditional communication media are still needed by society in Banyumas area, included information sharing about disaster prevention.
