Life Pebbles / Fire-fighting equipment

Life Pebbles
Life Pebbles

‘Disorientation’ is one of the most serious problems that fire fighters commonly encounter when they rescue the people in utter confusion at the scene of a fire.

To solve disorientation, ‘Life-Pebbles’ is inspired by ‘White Pebbles’ from the fairy tale ‘Hansel and Gretel’. Each ‘Life-pebbles’ contains plenty of fluorescent pebbles and drops them one by one. As Hansel and Gretel leave white pebbles for tracking the path of home, the fire fighter can trace the path for the escape without disorientation.
