Subway Catastrophe Kleenexes

Emergency Wet Tissues Protect You From Toxic Gas and Smoke

— November 4, 2013 — Lifestyle
All it takes is an exhaust-emitting truck to tempt you to breathe into your sleeve, but what does a whole subway's worth of people do when the air becomes contaminated underground? These Emergency Wet Tissues are a much more effective alternative to inhaling through woven cotton; they incorporate filters and deliver moisture to keep your lungs from becoming damaged.

Jeongguk Lee proposes dispensers for the gas mask wet wipes to be installed on the walls on subway platforms and illuminated by a green symbol that people associate with evacuation scenarios. Should there be a fire and smoke, or the expulsion of toxic chemicals, the Emergency Wet Tissues can cover one's nose and mouth completely, allowing them to continue with normal respiration while avoiding the consumption of unhealthy gaseous substances as they exit.
Trend Themes
1. Emergency Wet Tissues - The development and distribution of emergency wet tissues with filters and moisture for protection against toxic gas and smoke present opportunities for innovative safety solutions.
2. Gas Mask Wet Wipe Dispensers - Installing dispensers for gas mask wet wipes in subway stations creates an opportunity for convenient access to respiratory protection in emergency scenarios.
3. Subway Safety Solutions - Designing and implementing safety measures specific to subway environments, such as emergency wet tissues and gas mask wet wipe dispensers, addresses the unique challenges of underground contamination events.
Industry Implications
1. Emergency Preparedness - The emergency wet tissue innovation and gas mask wet wipe dispensers enhance the offerings in the emergency preparedness industry, providing individuals with better tools to protect themselves from toxic gas and smoke.
2. Public Transportation - Subway safety solutions, including the proposed gas mask wet wipe dispensers, contribute to improving the safety measures and emergency response capabilities in the public transportation industry.
3. Respiratory Protection - The development and distribution of emergency wet tissues with filters and moisture cater to the respiratory protection needs of workers in industries where exposure to toxic gases and smoke is possible, such as firefighting and industrial settings.
