Sungai Wain Protected Forest Area (SWPF) occupies approximately 11,245 hectares of land, yearly fire-year outbreak inside and outside the area. One of the significant problems associated with this area is the optimal fire control measures. Therefore, this study examines the fire control model in Sungai Wain Protected Forest Ecosystem, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. The Fire Danger Rating System (FDRS) method and the Analytic Weather System measurement were used to determine several FDRS indexes, namely FFMC, DMC, DC, BUI, ISI, and FWI, to obtain the most significant relationship to the occurrence of fires. The analysis shows that FWI is very influential on fires with a correlation value of Y = 82.907 + 32.814X, where Y and X denote the level of fire intensity and parameter. Furthermore, a structure model was used to analyze the present and future picture, which enabled the unified firefighting organization of protected forest management to carry out their jobs properly at low (0.4) moderate (2.67 and (2.403), high (9.368), and extreme index (16.023) FWI index values. This process is carried out with the help of a fire-care community team and the Forest and Land Fire Control Organization of East Kalimantan Province, and forest and land fire control organizations. The result showed that the city of Balikpapan could carry out its duties at the request of the Balikpapan Protected Forest Management Unit or fire with extreme intensity at SWPF. Furthermore, it also suggests locations where the fire is most likely to occur to equip early detection equipment, making it easier to anticipate and prevent fire in the SWPF area and its surroundings.
