Where there’s smoke, there’s bound to be fire. More people actually suffocate to death in fires rather than actually die by burning, so why not do something about this head-on?
That’s probably what Germain Verbrackel was thinking when he came up with TaG, which is short for ‘Take and Go.’ It’s basically a concept for a fire alarm-slash-gas mask so users can grab it and navigate corridors without having to breathe in all that smoky air.
It also uses flashing LED lights and a built-in locator to help the rescuers find and evacuate those who need help. Check out the video below to see how it would work:
Pretty ingenious, right?
