ESCAPE MASK / Stand Up and Run

ESCAPE MASK
ESCAPE MASK

Most of victims in a fire die from carbon monoxide poisoning.Because the sufficient oxygen will circulate within the 20 centimeter area above the floor, it’s always suggested that people should cover their mouths and crawl to escape from the fire.
But such actions will slower the movement and will hinder people from observing their situation which might reduce their rescue possibilities. On the contrary, the possibility should increase if people are able to stand up and run rapidly from the fire. This escape mask is designed for people to wear when running form the fire to secure their lives.
