Firescuba / protection


When a fire occurs, the smoke can be as dangerous as the flames. Protection from smoke inhalation is essential, and the Firescuba mask addresses this need. It is low-cost and easy to manufacture, having just two parts. Being very thin, Firescuba can be easily distributed in public places or stored at fire hydrants, fire escapes, or any other location. Should a fire break out, people would be able to obtain a mask easily. Firescuba would extend the time in which people could escape from a fire.
