Although wildfires have been a recurring problem, the total number of fires and the annual of burned areas have both been declining in the past two decades. This article outlines the government policies and other factors and their respective roles in explaining the decrease in forest fires and the lessons learned from forest fire prevention and firefighting in Viet Nam. To put these policies into local contexts regarding fire trends, capacities and gaps, a survey of 28 staff members involved in fire prevention and firefighting from 28 organizations was undertaken. The survey information is reported for the first time in this article.
