An Automatic Apparatus for Detecting and Reporting Forest Fires
The concept of using an automatic apparatus for detecting and reporting forest fires is not of recent origin. However, the apparatus herein described is the first concrete evidence of how this conjecture can be put into practical application. While the apparatus has definite weaknesses that will limit its use, it should be given consideration by those engaged in forest fire control planning as a tool that may result in better detection coverage.
