To cope with the increasing number of natural disasters in recent years, managers in the National Disaster and Safety Status Control Center, who have considerable experience and skills, are regarded highly important. Although the National Disaster and Safety Status Control Center oversees the disaster-status control tasks in preparation for various natural and social disasters, there is little data due to the frequent replacement of managers. Therefore, this study developed a disaster-safety code system that tracks and manages disaster information, because the current record management and amount of information sharing remains very low. Among 22 natural and social disaster types, this study targeted four types of disasters: heavy snow, strong winds, high seas, and heavy rain. The final disaster-safety data code system was proposed through the following processes: analysis of the code systems of disaster areas in Korea and overseas, setup of the implementation of directions, development of the classification system, and categorization. For the systematic accumulation of data, the four code systems were integrated into one. A prototype system was developed and operated to verify the validity of the proposed code system. The results showed that data were accumulated and services were provided accordingly with respect to the proposed code system. If past data are accumulated and utilized according to the proposed code system in this study, it will be helpful in the decision making process to respond to new types of disasters, based on past experiences.
