Abstract

Today, air pollution is a serious problem faced by industrial countries. The impact caused by air pollution

is not only a direct impact on human health, but also can damage the environment. One of the sources of

air pollution are now common is the forest fires which generate a compound emissions are carbon dioxide

(CO2).Several studies in the medical literature documenting a causal link between air pollution, especially

CO2 and negative impacts on health after short-term exposure, especially the unknown long-term health

consequences of exposure to pollution. Some studies related to fire management models and CO2 emission

reductions of them use the method of mapping risk of forest fires and the use of reforestation and the

elimination of illegal logging is considered effective to implement.
