Disaster is one type of non-military threat that can disrupt a country's national security. Indonesia is a country that has large islands in it. With these large islands, Indonesia also has vast forests. However, one of the problems with the extent of forests in Indonesia is forest and land fires. Forest and land fires become a serious problem when the dry season comes. Moreover, the impact of forest and land fires has become a problem between countries because of the smoke they cause. There are many losses arising from forest and land fires such as the economy, health, mobility. The complexity of the impact of forest and land fires requires contributions from various parties such as the regional government and also from the military. This study uses a descriptive qualitative approach. Data collection was carried out by means of a Focus Group Discussion (FGD) with sources from the Indonesian National Armed Forces at the 031 Wirabima Military Resort Command and also a literature review. The results of this study are that the collaboration carried out is manifested in several actions to prevent forest and land fires such as re-mapping disaster-prone areas, using information systems or early warning applications, patrolling, outreach, fostering and increasing the role of Fire Concerned Communities (MPA), peatland rewetting. The success of the collaboration can be seen from a significant decrease from 2020 to 2022.
