Brainstorm best ways to detect fires early.

There are 3 ways to detect fires early that I've thought of so far and done research on. 1. Satellite images a. https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/ne... - here is some tech that was suppose to be live by June 2018 (would have helped)- now firesat.info isn't even a live site (yikes!) b. planet.com - Planet Labs seems to have the tech right now to detect early! Have reached out to their team. 2. Infrared Drones - would need a large amount to be in orbit to gather real time data- or at least every 15- 20 in forests. 3. Melting metal to detect- using the same tech that's used in houses for sprinklers to go off in forests w/ radio sensors attached to give a signal when triggered. (would need A LOT) of these. https://www.explainthatstuff.com... But still another option... If you're looking at this, please let me know your thoughts! I'd love to hear any ideas you have as well!
