We select 'Chamanjeonin', a hero who saved our neighbors at risk.
This is a person who protects the lives and property of other people through one’s great sacrifice and courageous action during disasters (natural, human disaster, fire, etc.).
Those who have long been recognized for volunteer activities related to disasters and relief are called 'Chamanjeonin'.
Selection procedure for 'Chamanjeonin'
'Chamanjeonin' is selected among people recommended by the Ministry of Interior and Safety, local governments,
and the public. After a review process by the local government, the final decision is made through a strict and fair review by a public hearing committee.
