최근 우리나라는 고령화 사회에 빠르게 진입되었다. 농촌지역의 노인 응급환자 초기 대응 시스템 개선을 위해 마을 방송 장비의 활용과 노인을 위한 응급처치 교육방법의 개선으로 보다 많은 민간구조자원을 확보하여 응급상황 발생시 초기대응 능력을 향상시키고자 본 연구를 실시하였다. 현재 우리나라 119의 노인 응급의료서비스 실태를 살펴보고, 고령화 시대 사회적 안전장치의 역할을 충실히 수행할 수 있는 노인 안전을 위한 구급서비스 개선 방안 및 노인안전 센터 개설로 인한 노인안전 인프라 구축 방안을 모색하고자 하는데 본 연구의 목적이 있다.
