Emergency Responder / Street lamp design improvement

Emergency Responder

This design plays a role as a life-saving equipment which helps people get more chances to save their lives when tsunami or flood occurs.When running water swarms into the town, once it touch the inductor at the bottom of the light, the streetlight will power off immediately. At the same time, the head of the light will fall down and transfer to a cork hoop. People who are too late to escape from danger can grab the cork hoop nearby in case of drowning. In addition, the illuminating system which locates in the head of light can make people easier to be distinguished during the rescue.
