It is advisable not to call 911 in the instance of an insufficient seating crisis, but such a situation could be serious if there are weary soles present in great numbers. The Emergency Bench was designed to provide an additional place for people to perch, should a venue be ill-equipped for the crowd.

Made from nylon, vinyl and hypalon, the supplementary chair can be inflated in a matter of seconds, given a fairly powerful air pump. It takes a long cylindrical shape and, with it's bright orange color, it undoubtedly resembles a marine buoy turned on its side. Jamie Wolfond's Emergency Bench comes with a durable strap and a pair of yellow aluminum legs each. Once blown up, the furnishing sits steady and accommodates up to three people.
