    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to examine habitability aspects of temporary shelters provided for disaster victims between South Korea and the U.S. by analyzing the mass media content. First, Korea's temporary shelters(earthquake) are designated as facilities with weak seismic design, it had led to problems with safety, convenience, and comfort, so should be developed guidelines considering criteria and habitability of facility designation. Second, since catastrophic disasters often occurred in the U.S., evacuees had to stay in mega-shelters and went through the trouble due to the invasion of privacy and the lack of safety, but additional options, such as trailers and manufactured homes, were available for providing disaster victims with a safe, comfortable environment. Third, the unsanitary and unhealthy condition was considered as a common major problem of temporary shelters in both countries, which needs to be carefully addressed in the space planning.

    Hyun Soo Choi | Ju Ha Hwang | Maeng, Seung-jin and 1other persons | 2018, 14(10) | pp.57~71 | number of Cited : 0
    Due to unusual precipitation or flood, the rivers located at the downstream of reservoir may influence the safety of the people living near the river. This study provides a guideline for the local government officials, managers and residents to prepare against disasters by analyzing the change in water level (rise) especially when PMF occurs. The study discovers the relationship between the overflowing water level from the reservoir and change in downstream water level and use it as an indicator for responding to disasters. The attention level(“Blue”), the early emergency management stage, is determined as from the issuance of a special weather alert to the water level that comes at 10% of the planned overflowing water level due to flood in the reservoir spillway. This study also suggests that the caution level(“Yellow”) should be set as a water level that comes at 10 to 100% of the planned level in the reservoir spillway due to a massive flood. The results of this study are expected to contribute to implementing an effective disaster response system in Korea.

Data were collected from 373 students enrolled in three high schools in Busan, Korea through a self-report questionnaire survey conducted during September 10-24, 2017, and analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation and stepwise multiple regression. It is found that hand hygiene practices differed according to grades, economic status, subjective health status, soap use and length of hand washing time. A significant correlation was found between knowledge of hand washing and hand washing practices, and length of hand washing time, soap use, knowledge of hand washing, economic status and grades were predictors of hand washing compliance (R2=.195, p<.001).These findings indicate that there is a need of hand-washing education programs considering the characteristics of students, which should promote environments that encourage hand washing practices among high school students in Korea.
