ABSTRACT

This study tried to discuss the redistribution of firefighting works among central government and local governments according to the changes in firefighting environments. Conclusively, current firefighting related laws and regulations are being operated based on the notion that firefighting works are directly related to safety of citizens. Dual system such as central government presents various safety related standards and local governments execute them is in place. However, there are many cases that the provisions of laws and regulations are not concrete and there can be some differences in actual execution by local governments. Thus, it is difficult to secure the same standards throughout the nation. Therefore we may need a comprehensive standards and government driven execution system. We need to consider the establishment of national office for various safety related plans that should be established or performed throughout the nation based on the nation‐wide office or similar sized office standards.
