To use fire only for certain purposes and on a limited scale. Furthermore, Saharjo et al. (1999) state that for forest fire control to be successful a comprehensive control plan needs to be drawn up in advance. This plan will form a basis for carrying out prevention, suppression and use of fire in a controlled manner in the forests and surrounding areas. The forest fire control plan is an integral part of the forest management plan. The facts from several fire incidents in Indonesia show that fire management in Indonesia is focused more on suppression than on prevention.
