The term IoT: Internet of Things paradigm provides an environment which facilitates the implementation of new technology in all social environments. Forests are one of the important aspects in our social life, which provides vegetation, place to wild animals, and ecosystem services that are critical to human welfare. But every year, they are attacked by wildfire; due to this, we lose huge vegetation, animal life and create air pollution. In this paper, we proposed an IoT-based model to provide a solution to the wildfire. The paper describes an approach to detect and reduce the effect of wildfire. We place smoke and temperature sensor poles in specific locations in the forest and allow the collection of data from these sensors continuously to the cloud. In the cloud, we define API to analyze the data and if any suspicious data is found, the API automatically sends necessary orders to drones, which can be deployed in that suspicious location and spread fire suppression gas to reduce the effect of wildfire, and also an instruction sends to Central Monitoring System of Wildfire.
