ABSTRACT

Anniversary means the day to remember and celebrate what should be congratulated or honored every year based on government's regulation about all kinds of anniversaries, etc. On the dates, each institution significantly improves meaning of the anniversaries and seeks new development and maturation by holding the anniversary event or other events. However, if looking back on the history of anniversary event for the 50th firefighting day on Nov. 09, 2012, we cannot help being doubtful if Nov. 09 is significant day as a firefighting day. The purposes of this research are to shed new light on the time, reason and object of firefighting day historically, examine changes of firefighting day so that it can be significant day like all of national anniversaries(legal anniversaries) or firefighting day of other countries in spite of repenting of the missing a chance and suggest the necessity to alter firefighting day which is suitable for firefighting day firefighting officers can possess pride and rewarding by seeing the anniversary suitable for firefighting day and new firefighting day. For the enactment of firefighting day by each institution and each country, there are sufficiently objective reasons and motives which can celebrate by the institution and each country. But, this research suggested that new firefighting day of matured firefighting organization should be altered to firstly the day to use the word of firefighting in our history, secondly the day when Korean firefighting organization(government office) was established for the first time, thirdly the day Korean National Emergency Management Agency was inaugurated, etc. by indicating that our firefighting day was enacted by only the reason emergency number is 119.
