Forest fires are burning areas of forest or land in large or small areas. Forest fires are often uncontrollable and when this happens, the fire will burn anything nearby for two reasons, one of which is burning naturally or burning caused by humans. One of the man-made fires deliberate by humans is the burning used by the community around the forest to open or clear agricultural or plantation land. The community feels that clearing land with fire does not require a long time and is more economical, if the use of fire is not used properly it can cause the forest to burn. Forest fires in Riau area are still classified as minimal or fires rarely occur. However, the community is at least aware of the forest fires in Riau due to a lack of media information about where the fire hotspots occurred. With this application, it can help the public to better know where the hotspots have been burned. This application consists of 2 levels of access, namely: admin and user. For admins and users, the manufacturing process uses the Android Studio application with Java as the programming language, this application uses Firebase as its database to find out the location of fire hotspots using the Google Maps API. Testing on the application is created to test whether the application has run as desired. Test results using white box testing method.
