This academic article aims to (1) study the competency of fire disaster management by the Mueang Municipalities of the Nakhonchaiburi group in the northeastern region (2) study the conditions of the disaster prevention systems of these municipalities and (3) study the relationships between competency in the management of fire disasters and fire disaster prevention systems. The research method used is quantitative research by from specific samplings in 6 Mueang Municipalities. The data from sample population of 620 were collected from administrative group.
