Forest fires are one of the severe security threats and national disasters faced by people in Indonesia. Forest fires in Indonesia have occurred massively in several regions in Indonesia such as East Kalimantan, West Kalimantan, Jambi and Riau Provinces. Forest fires in Indonesia are caused by natural and human factors. Natural factors are caused by the long and extreme dry season and human factors due to the conversion of forests into plantations and illegal logging. Therefore, we need the right policies in preventing forest fires in Indonesia. This paper uses the study of literature with policy theory. The research method used is descriptive qualitative method with interviews with research informants. The results showed that the Governor of Riau, as the head of the government, carried out various policies and activities, including conducting coordination meetings with elements of regional leadership through the Regional Leaders Communication Forum, enforcing legal sanctions for forest burners, forming a smoke disaster management team at the provincial, district/city level and district and conduct activities in the form of artificial rain. The novelty produced in this research is participatory civil society which is directly involved in assisting the government in the form of Community-based Fire Management as an effort to solve smoke disasters in Indonesia, especially in Riau Province.
