The impacts of disasters on reaching global levels increased risk reduction efforts in this area. Although efforts to reduce disaster risks have increased, these studies have not been able to significantly reduce socio-economic vulnerability. Many communities are still vulnerable to disasters and this exposure is increasing over time. Reducing the vulnerability of individuals and societies to disasters can only be achieved through more comprehensive and human-based preventive approaches to disaster risks. All these reveal the importance of widespread innovative work at the community-based disaster risk management. To realize community-based disaster management within the scope of this study, individuals become aware of the risks in the shelter areas where they spend most of their lives and the shelter risk analysis scale, which aims to minimize the loss of life and property in disasters and emergencies. Within the scope of this scale, the level of awareness of the individual, the structural and non-structural hazards in the shelter areas, environmental hazards and threat perception were measured and risk potentials were communicated to the person at the end of the analysis.
