What is Wildfire Sentinel?
Wildfire Sentinel was born with the idea of preserving the ecosystem in a sustainable way. Wildfires are one of the main threats to the environment, causing a great loss of biodiversity and natural resources.
In 2023, a total of 2.6 million wildfires were recorded worldwide, which destroyed a total of 82 million hectares. This represents an increase of 14% compared to 2022 and 25% compared to the average of the 2010s.
One of the main causes of wildfires is the time it takes from the first fire to be detected. The average is usually 2 to 3 hours, which gives the fire time to spread and cause more damage.
Wildfire Sentinel is an early fire detection device that detects the fire at the moment of ignition. This allows emergency services to be alerted immediately, increasing the chances of extinguishing the fire before it causes more damage.
Early detection of wildfires can save millions of lives, both human and animal. It can also prevent natural disasters and contribute to the preservation of our environment.
