Breath / An escaping tool in fire


In indoor fires, smoke asphyxiation is the main cause of fire deaths. So when the fire comes, the best way is to cover your mouth and nose with a wet towel and crawl. However, wet towels are difficult to obtain in a public place.
Breath is a fire escape tool for public places such as high-rise office buildings, shopping malls and cinemas. When a fire occurs, break the bottle and the water inside will soak the towel. Thus a wet towel can be quickly got to prevent the inhalation of smoke and hot air. It can be stored next to the fire extinguisher box or under each cinema seat.
