ABSTRACT

This study aims to suggest the optimal operational plan of safety experience and education center (i.e. safety village) through public-private partnership. Disaster safety education is expected to enhance disaster resilience and the educational impacts could be augmented when hands-on experiences are emphasized during the education process. However, it appears difficult for local governments with limited resources to obtain sustainable budgets to maintain and operate such education facilities. Thus, we reviewed and compared the operational budget and safety experience programs of various safety villages in the US, Canada and Japan and drew out useful benchmarking implications for local governments in Korea. We found that the private sector has been actively engaged in operating safety villages in the US and Canada, while the safety experience centers in Japan offer experience programs tailored to the unique disaster characteristics of each local government. For the improved operation of safety experience and education center in Korea, we suggest compulsory safety education to ensure citizen’s participation and operational sustainability of the center.
