These factors which negatively affect the ecosystem in the world have been noticed and the hitches are wanted to be prevented. As known, fires are the leading of these disasters. Most of the fires are triggered by the environmental causes even though a minority of them are self-triggered. To prevent fires many different safety systems have been developed. Among these systems, Wireless Sensor Networks stand out with their ease of use and low cost. In this study implementation of systems for keeping track of fires in a certain area with Wireless Sensor Networks has been discussed. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
