Objectives: This study looks at quality attributes of fire - fighting garment based on customer recognition using Kano Model and provides basic research materials to help develop better fire. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Data was collected using a survey by the self - administered method, and the survey was conducted for fire fighters stationed in Jellabukdo from 08.01.2015 to 01.31.2016. Convenient sampling was used to collect data from the total of 175 fire fighters, and the collected data was analyzed by IBM SPSS 22. Findings: The results of this study were followed: First, only ‘color’ and ‘design’ was classified into an attractive quality attribute among 20 quality attributes of fire - fighting garment, and the all the rest was classified into a unitary quality attribute. Second, some quality attributes showed a significant difference in the results of statistical analysis, but overall, no significant differences were found in the categories of service periods and age groups. Thirds, no significant statistical differences were found in service periods and age groups in the category of satisfaction in work, and 67% of the total respondent answered more than satisfied, showing relatively high work satisfaction of fire fighters. Improvements/Applications: A further study is necessary to reduce dissatisfaction on the rest of quality attributes except for color and design through improvements, while increasing the satisfaction level.
