Findings: According to the desirability of significant levels and confirmation of research hypothesis, knowledge management has a significant impact on passive defense in Red Crescent society of Sistan & Baluchistan (0/843). The components of KM coefficient are as follows: knowledge creation (0/749), absorbing knowledge (0/809), organizing knowledge (0/808), storage knowledge (0/804), diffusion of knowledge (0/918) and knowledge application (0/717) have a significant impact on passive defense. However, with the increase or decrease in knowledge management and its components, passive defense is affected by the mentioned factors.

Conclusion: The results showed that knowledge management and its components have a significant impact on passive defense so that strengthening each of the mentioned factors can improve implementation of passive defense. Therefore, managers should always try to consider KM (which is now an integral part of their duties at all levels); and provide opportunities for all KM initiatives to execute in the organization.
