The main purpose of firefighter is to rescue people in the scene of a fire not to extinguish flame. However, the problem is how to know people’s accurate locations in a fired building. And it is very difficult to save people in a thick smoke place. Sometimes, most of the people faint unconscious in fire accident place. They can not make any noise to notify the firefighters so it is very crucial to let firefighters to know the exactly positions of faint people.
