In recent years, wildfires have emerged as a global environmental crisis, causing significant damage to ecosystems, and contributing to climate change. Wildfire management methods involve prevention, response, and recovery efforts. Despite advancements in detection methods, the increasing frequency of wildfires necessitates innovative solutions for early detection and efficient management. This study explores proactive approaches to detect and manage wildfires in the United States by leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and 5G technology. The specific objective of this research covers proactive detection and prevention of wildfires using advanced technology; Active monitoring and mapping with remote sensing and signaling leveraging on 5G technology; and Advanced response mechanisms to wildfire using drones and IOT devices. This study was based on secondary data collected from government databases and analyzed using descriptive statistics. In addition, past publications were reviewed through content analysis, and narrative synthesis was used to present the observations from various studies. The results showed that developing new technology presents an opportunity to detect and manage wildfires proactively. This would save a lot of lives and prevent huge economic loss that is attributed to wildfire outbreaks and spread. Advanced technology can be used in several ways to help in the proactive detection and management of wildfires. This includesthe development of the use of AI-enabled remote sensing and signaling devices and leveraging 5G technology for active monitoring and mapping of wildfires. In addition, super intelligent drones and IOT devices can be used for safer responses to wildfires. This forms the core of the recommendation to the fire Management Agencies and the government.
