What can be seen through the analysis of fire prevention systems in educational facilities in the United States, United Kingdom and Japan is as follows. First, it is a detailed fire safety standard suitable for the special purpose of buildings such as educational facilities. Second, detailed guidance in cooperation with local fire departments. Third, regular fire drills and compliance with fire safety construction laws in school buildings are mandatory. Finally, it is the disclosure of the website of fire safety standards and guidelines for educational facilities, and so on. In order to effectively improve the fire prevention system of educational facilities in Korea, it is necessary to prepare fire safety guidelines for schools suitable for local characteristics. As explained in the case of overseas education, it is necessary for the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology or the educational autonomous district to cooperate with local fire departments to prepare detailed guidelines in all areas such as construction management, supervision, and inspection of buildings. And when such detailed guidelines are prepared, it is possible to prepare fire safety guidelines tailored to the characteristics of the region.
