From Head-Protecting Seating to Emergency Refuge Igloos

Finding emergency refuge items is not always an easy task, and usually people don't think about keeping these products around until it's too late. These earthquake-aiding pieces, however, could help many individuals in times of need.

From apps that tell users if an earthquake is coming, to doors that fold down for added protection during a quake, these products vary in terms of their uses. The Truila App for example is an item that tries to warn people about real estate, and just how prone a house is to falling apart during an earthquake. If you live in a place where these natural disasters are quite common, then this is the type of technology you'd want to use in order to prevent certain events from taking over your life.
