ABSTRACT

Various of disasters such as fires always exist in Modern society so the government should make sure people’s safety by effectively dealing with those risks. The government has the responsibility to protect people from diverse catastrophes. Fire-fighting agency is the very one which carries out the responsibility mentioned above. Fundamental Law of Fire-fighting, as Basic law, regulates the organization and operation of Fire-fighting agency, but its regulation is abstractive. In addition to that, it is less clear to stipulate the authority the agency should have to properly cope with fires. So, in order to enforce effective law on increasing fires, law should set up specific prescriptions about the organization and operation of fire-fighting agency. In spite of that, the current law does neither regulate those mentioned above nor the degree of authority the agency should have. Thus, this study analyzed problems existing in Fundamental Law of Fire-fighting that aims to protect people’s life, body and property from fires as well as to do well fire-fighting operation and suggested some alternatives to improve the problems. The direction Fundamental Law of Fire-fighting should head to is to reform the law so that it can attain its purpose it is pursuing. Furthermore, effective law enforcement should be achieved by establishing detail regulation about giving authority to an agency.
