In brief: Several ways

The most important thing is to avoid the trigger if known.
Seasonal asthma such as from pollens may require an increase in controller medication before pollen season starts. Allergy injections are an excellent way to prevent allergic asthma after identifying the causative allergens. While this is more time consuming, it is the only real long-term treatment that is disease-modifying!

In brief: Prevent...

To prevent asthma exacerbations, one needs to avoid the allergen triggers as much as possible.
This is often difficult to do but by avoiding the allergens, you lessen the chance of having an exacerbation. To indentify your allergic triggers, you may need to see an allergist for allergy testing.
