Smoke, especially secondhand, causes many health problems like cancer and cardiac arrest among firefighters during rescue operations. Though the breathing masks allow protection against dense smoke, but they are ineffective against the residual smoke. Addressing the issue, designer Fred Tavan has developed an improved breathing apparatus called the “Respiratory Fire” that allows better protection against smoke in critical situations.
Incorporating a filtration system to reduce the risks of secondhand smoke, the Respiratory Fire also includes spherical tanks that contain a greater air pressure to provide greater security to firefighters in critical situations.
