The widely spread of the Dengue Haemorhagic Fever (DHF) in North Sumatra made a field work study on this topic was very important. It was reported that the Dengue Haemorhagic Fever (DHF) is an acute fever in 2 until 7 days with two or more manifestations such as headache, retro-orbital pain, mialgia, atralgia, skin rash, and haemorhagic manifestation. A case study of the Community Based Control was carried to know the responsible factors of the widely spread of DHF and the way of controlling its by applied Comunity Based Model. This study basically sought the influential factors of the widely spread of DHF such as rainfall, air humadity, air temperature, and wind velocity that might be possible to be anticipated by Community and government.  Thus, the effectiveness of Community Based Controlling Model was also presented. The combination of recorded cases and a field observation was proceeded  to the liniar regression test; so it was known that there was an association between air temperature and DHF case in Binjai Municipality 2011-2015 because the p value was 0,038 (p < 0.05). The association between wind velocity and DHF cases showed a strongly significant association (r = 0,899) and patterned is necessary to eradicate the mosquito breeding place in a high number of DHF case.
