IMHERE / fire extinguisher


IMHERE is a new concept for fire extinguishers in which a fire detector and alarm function is added.
The fire detector’s sensors senses CO if a fire starts. The alarm then makes a
piercing sound to quickly inform its location to a possible user. This extinguisher’s alarm continuously
sends out noise to people around while it puts out the fire.
A critical problem of existing extinguishers is that they are not very easy to find when a fire takes place.
IMHERE can prevent human casualties and property damage because its alarm allows people
to get into action in a swift and effective way.
