Abstract: Forest fires are a serious problem in modern times, especially in semi-arid and Mediterranean climates. With the annual rise in number of forest fires and area burned, any help or information which a citizen in the field can provide to forest fire fighters and civil protection workers will aid in managing a forest fire scenario. This research devises an information system that allows ordinary citizens to submit forest fire sightings to the appropriate authorities. After the information system was created an accuracy assessment was conducted in order to assess the usability of the system.
