Ad-hoc networks do not need any preexisting network infrastructure and have been developed as temporal networks in various fields. An infostation is a system to relay information that is not delay-sensitive. In this paper, we propose an early disaster warning system built on infostations and an adhoc network composed of sensors attached to moving animals. We analyze the performance of the proposed system by simulation. The analysis results show that the proposed system will be very useful in the early detection of big forest fires which occur frequently in Korea mountain areas.
