Disaster can strike at any given moment. There are measures that you, as an individual, can take to increase your chances of survival. There are also some fixtures that firms can choose to install in their offices to up their employees’ survival rate as well.
One of these is the SAVE:US Emergency Light.
It’s basically an overhead light in normal situations. But in cases of emergency, people can simply pull down a removable torch that they can use to get around the area or fire off SOS signals when they need help.
Each torch is also equipped with a GPS system, so trapped victims can signal for help, making it easier for rescue teams to locate them.
SAVE:US is a 2011 Red Dot design concept winner and was designed by Jo Joo Hyun, Choi Sung Hun, Jin Min Hee & Park So Jeing. While there are no current plans to put it into production, it seems like a good enough idea to consider it.
