Factors that cause peatland fires are caused by 2 factors, namely intentional factors and accidental factors. For intentional factors caused by the farming system with the traditional culture of the local population, the cost of burning peat land is cheaper, faster, and more practical, land ownership conflicts, and increased demand for palm oil. Accidental factors are caused by throwing cigarette butts carelessly, making bonfires, and burning debris, and garbage so that it spreads to peatlands. The public education model in efforts to prevent peatland fires is divided into 2 approaches. First, an educational model with an individual approach through direct and indirect communication, technical guidance, and face-to-face services to the public. Second, an educational model with a mass approach through socialization and campaigns, discussion rooms, and social media containing educational content on peatland fire prevention, peatland restoration actions, and a formal education curriculum with local content on peatland fire disaster mitigation.
