Forest fires require huge resources to monitor and fight. It demands for a monitoring system to link all the resources for effective management. Information needs to be delivered to the base station and to cope with the network unreliability problem. Few routing protocol takes into consideration of this problem. It is a great challenge of the hierarchical routing protocol to provide Quality of Service (QoS) in the presence of different data types. This paper is extension work of for QoS issue. A brief review of the existing routing protocol is given, followed by a description of the proposed protocol. Based on simulation results, the proposed routing protocol achieved superior performance about 80% better in terms of end-to-end delay with respect to the network size than selected existing routing protocols. Finally, conclusion was drawn based on the research and future direction for further research is identified.
