m'brace / fire escape mask


Fire fighters face some of the hardest conditions and are expected to save others from these environments.
Fire escape hoods are designed to escape fire by filtering out toxic smoke and fumes. In the case of current hooded devices the rescuing action can be considered as an act of putting an undefined bag over your head, while asking for air.
The m‘brace rescue mask concept challenges the current situation of hooded devices and offers an activity-based solution with special regard to the relation and interaction between the stakeholders.
