Gwangnaru Safety Experience Center was founded in 1999 after two fire accidents in which many children lost their lives. These tragedies emphasized the necessity of establishing a disaster training center for common citizens.

Gwangnaru Safety Experience Center is a three-story building with one basement floor, covering an area of more than 5000 m². The basement floor includes a small theater. The first floor is set up for natural disaster training and consists of an orientation hall, storm simulation training room, earthquake simulation room, computer tests on fire safety knowledge and others. The second floor is a place for artificial catastrophe training. It consists of a smoke escape training room, fire extinguisher training room, first-aid (CPR) training room and practicing place for calling 119. The third floor is used for rescue training and consists of a rescue training room, screening room, training for professionals and video examples of five biggest disasters that have occurred in Seoul. Overall there are about 20 training areas established, so citizens can experience the imitation of a disaster by themselves and learn easily and in an interesting way how to cope with a disaster.
