The Emergency Helmet is an air-bag type emergency aid to protect the user’s head falling materials during an earthquake. The helmet is folded up in a plastic case under liquefied gas for ease of storage. When the user activates the upper lever during an emergency, the case immediately splits and the helmet is inflated by liquefied gas. During inflation, the Emergency Helmet fits snugly around any head shape. It also has an LED light on the rear which turns on automatically, helping people escape buildings during a earthquake blackout.
