Today we live in a society where natural disasters, man-made disasters and social disasters are happening constantly, these disasters have more and more larger and the damage from the disasters has increased astronomically. Major disaster is much too big for only government to resolve the damage from the disasters. Because of insufficient equipment and resources in the disaster field, rapid emergency recovery is hard to achieve in spite of increased damages and disaster frequencies. Also, that exceeds the ability of government agencies is becoming more common in disaster. Therefore, it is required to mobilize reserved military resources of emergency relief and recovery after large-scaled disaster. The suggested alternatives for the role and preparedness directions of military resources in the disaster management are as follows: first, we have to recognize overcoming disaster as the primary duties of military, second, modify disaster-related laws and legislations, third, establish principles of support of military, fourth, maintain the cooperative system among the civil society, government and the military, fifth, establish a disaster management education and training system, sixth, establish the international cooperative system for disaster management.
