ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research is to theoretically examine historical change of the fire-fighting organization from the liberation of Korea from Japanese rule on August 15, 1945 to that of the Ministry of Public Safety and Security of the Park Geun-hye Administration, which could suggest policy proposals on the developmental direction of the fire-fighting organization in Korea. Whenever there was a reorganization of disaster management organizations, the fire-fighting organization was not at the center of change but assigned an auxiliary role. Hence, the developmental direction of Korea’s fire-fighting organization should include the institutional and policy reforms such as implementing the function of a disaster management control tower, establishing the National Fire Service Agency as a standalone agency, implementing the fire-fighting safety policy, developing experience-oriented fire-fighting safety education programs for citizens, and unifying the national disaster management command system.
