During firing exercises in the military forces, safety accidents have occurred and caused nonbattle loss of human lives. Despite huge impact of the safety accidents in firing ranges on the military forces and civilians, the preventive measures have been limited and inflexible. In this study, to decrease the accident rate in small arm firing ranges, a methodology was presented to determine danger zones in firing ranges that resulted from direct bullets or ricochets during firing exercises. On the basis of ballistic theory and the actual terrain data surveyed by a drone, the danger zone of OO Firing Range was identified by schematizing the trajectories of the direct bullets and ricochets. The Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) with the accuracy of the small arm on the terrain data showed that the danger zone of the current firing range was limited due to topographic advantages. However, when human errors were included in the MCS, the danger zones were significantly enlarged. The methodology of the present study can provide a safety check-up model that identifies danger zones in the firing ranges used by the Army.
