First aid was the most important thing for saving people's lives in the golden period. Volunteers, as they have been trained as an emergency rescuer, we discovered some failure processes when delivered first aid. This study aims to discuss the use of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) to determine the factors related to first aid behavior on volunteers. This study used a descriptive-analytic with a cross-sectional study approach. One hundred twenty-one volunteers were taken using purposive sampling. The variables were Attitude Toward Behavior (ATB), Subjective Norm (SN), Perceived Behavioral Control (PBC), intention, and first aid behavior. Respondents were asked to complete six self-design questionnaires to evaluate first aid behavior. Data were analyzed using Spearman's Rho with significance level ≤0.05. The result showed a significant relationship between ATB and SN with intention (p = 0.000; p = 0.000), intention and first aid behavior (p = 0.000). PBC had a significant relationship with intention (p = 0.412). Increasing the first aid behavior can be done through the enhancement of the specific beliefs of TPB. Further research with qualitative studies can conceive the deepest perspective in volunteers associated with first aid behavior.
