Abstract
The elderly population in Korea has been increasing rapidly, therefore, the government has implemented the "long term care insurance" strategy since July of 2008. As a result, the number of elderly care facilities has increased. However, the establishment of an act which involves evacuation capable of securing safe escape of the elderly, is still needed considering the numerical increase of elderly care facilities. In terms of securing the escape safety of small nursing homes, the small-scale elderly care facility is the most urgent issue of all. In this research, fire simulations and evacuation simulations are used to analyze the particularities of evacuation in accordance with the plans of small nursing homes. As a result, it was found that the establishment of a measure for securing escape safety of small nursing homes is needed. Therefore, installation of sprinklers, bi-directional evacuation, and reduction of the fire growth rate are proposed as measures to secure the escape safety of such homes.
