Incidents could not always be avoided, resulting in significant losses for the state property and people's safety. Effective monitoring of incidents is becoming more and more important. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are widely used in environmental monitoring. On the basis of the existing wireless sensor network node deployment model, a network node deployment model was proposed, which was used in the monitoring of unexpected accidents. The model area was divided into the core area and the evacuation area, and different monitoring nodes deployment plans were applied in different areas. The simulation experiment is carried out by MATLAB, and the simulation results of the node coverage are obtained. Results show that the model for the practical application of the node deployment provides an effective deployment plan, as well as offers a strong basis for real-time monitoring and post-accident emergency evacuation.
