ABSTRACT

This study was conducted in order to analyze financial resources for fire service in the U.S. and Japan, to survey the current state of finance for fire service in Korea and derive problems, and to make strategies to develop sufficient financial resource for fire service. According to the results of this study, finance for fire service in Korea is very poor, and differs among local self‐governing bodies. Thus, it is highly likely that fire service will be unequal among localities in the future. In contrast, foreign countries’ finance for fire service is characterized by the diversity of financial resources for fire service, beneficiary pays and user pays principle in fire taxation, clarification of laws and regulations on financing expenses of fire administration and service, and the central government’s roles in and high contribution to financial resource for fire service.
