ABSTRACT

As a part of "2011 Safe Korea Exercise", this study carries out a survey on the perception to the tsunami evacuation exercise targeting Samcheok residents who participated in the exercise which simultaneously took place all over the country on May 4, 2011. As a result, it was reported that the safety of their residential area about tsunami is low, and the possible occurrence of tsunami is relatively high. Second, Samcheok residents lacked in experience about the tsunami evacuation exercises; however, they showed their intention of active participations if the exercises are provided. Third, orientations or promotions about the tsunami evacuation exercise targeting residents were quite insufficient, and the exercise participation rate was relatively high to the residents living in the evacuation zone. Fourth, the evaluation of the signal legibility about the evacuation direction boards was well regarded, and the agreement rate about distributing the tsunami evacuation maps to the residents was relatively high. Finally, some residents responded that they do not know about the tsunami evacuation routes when a tsunami happens, so that the continuous promotions about the tsunami evacuation are highly recommended.
