The purpose of the study was to investigate the factors that affected the organizational efficiency in fire incident crisis management and recovery during a fire at a B thermal power plant in Korea. The data were collected from 286 employees of the B thermal power plant who gave their informed consent and completed a self-reported questionnaire in December, 2012. A structural equation model was established and used to assess parameters such as burnout, organization based self-esteem, organizational image, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment. The fitness of the modified model was adequate (χ2 /df = 4.313, goodness of fit index = 0.995, adjusted goodness of fit index = 0.978, Tucker Lewis index = 1.004, comparative fit index = 1.000, normal fit index = 0.997, root mean square error of approximation = 0.000). Analysis of the modified model demonstrated that the direct and total effects of job satisfaction, organizational image, burnout, and organization based self-esteem were significantly correlated with organizational commitment. The results of this study indicate that it is necessary to develop a burnout intervention program to enhance organizational efficiency, organization based self-esteem, and organizational image.
