Forest fires cause significant damage to the countries’ economy, which is not always possible to be represented by specific numbers. The forest fires’ prevention is one of the high-priority issues of forestry. A certain operation sequence at a forest site will help in implementing the system approach in the development and implementation of a set of measures to ensure fire prevention of the forest site. The success of the fire safety system depends on the effective analysis of situation at the time of its development, which begins with the study of the forest fund state based on the latest forest management measures. Changes in the forest fund of the forest site are updated at field observation. Timelines and standard of forestry measures’ performance are assessed, as well as the state of fire safety on the forest site. The fire prevention management cartographic document of the site with indication of order and timing of actions gives real information for opera-tional staff work. Testing the system of fire prevention measures on the example of the Borovskaya Forest Dacha of the Bryansk Military Forestry according to the developed uniform algorithm of effective actions has shown its reliability and sufficiently high efficiency.
