ABSTRACT

The growth of modern society has had a ripple effect which brought complication and diversification of society. Under this trends, disasters of new notion has appeared. Ulich Beck mentioned that occurrence of such disasters is a phenomenon of risk society caused by growth of industrial society. Recently, an unprecedented series of extreme weather events like great floods, brutual heats, colds, droughts, and earthquake has occurred throughout the whole world. In sum, surroundings of disasters varies rapidly every time, so adequate response is becoming more difficult. Despite of government's various efforts, damage caused by disaster is constantly increasing. So we need efficient, scientific, systematic 'Disaster managing system'. For this, Ubiquitous Computing Information Technology which is advanced rapidly today should be used. Especially innovative improvement in Information Network, Remote Sensing System and Computing makes it possible for us to spread information. It also promote efficiency of conducting business in field of disaster management. Then ubiquitous information technology should be used in disaster managing system for rational choice. We put in place information system of disaster management field through plans 'Cyber Korea 21' and 'u-Safe Korea' in 1999, 2005., though, some discord between the central and the front happened because they didn't have enough discussion before its commence. Also Order Controlling GPS System and Ubiquitous 119 Reporting System which is in force from 2008 do not show remarkable effect. This investigation is starting point of disaster management research. It intend to understand disaster management's theories and realities and analyze factors that affect efficiency of disaster management. Results of investigation show that fire fighting officials‘s recognition and use frequency of UIT is low. On the other hand they think UTI is suitable and easy to get information. Then expectation of UTI is very big. I suggest that Order Controlling GPS which is used now be improved problem of delay by maintaining access condition and solved problem of long boot time by removing unnecessary functions.
