ABSTRACT
Disaster may be defined as a sudden calamitous event associated with great damage or destruction. A more common definition, among emergency-preparedness planners, is a medical occurrence that overwhelms medical care systems and facilities. Most regional disaster plans are formulated to respond to disasters of moderate size. At 07:50 AM. on 2.8 April 1995, gas explosion was happened at Sangin-Dong where was going to be under construction of subway in Taegu, Korea 102 victims had died and 178 victims had moderate or minor injuries. Problems in the organization at the scene, triage, field management, transport to the hospital, and the communication contributed to the confusion in the management of victims. An analysis of this disaster allows several lessons to be learn about perimeter control, command functions, crowd control, and transportation priorities. It will benefit disaster planners in other communities.
