As we know, Fire is one of the most damaging disasters, as a result, protecting people from inbreathing harmful gas like sulfur dioxide and dust when runing away is extremely necessary. Common sense tell us that it is necessary to use a wet towel covering mouth and nose when disaster comes, for the reason that wet scarf can resist dust and filtrate harmful gas in the air.

However, Fire usually happened without signs, thus, it is quite urgent that people have no time to wet a towel. This design is based on this problem. Wet respirator is a cobination of a traditional respirator and a water bag.
