The Fire Escape Mask is an innovative piece of fire safety equipment that prevents people from inhaling toxic gases while escaping a fire.

The life-saving mask is filled with liquid and when it is pulled out of its package, the mask provides moisture to help keep the mouth and nasal passages clear, leaving hands free to help others or move objects if need be.

The design by Jiang Jieyu, Fang Zishuo, Tong Shang, Hu Tengwen, and Chi Cheng is especially innovative in its consideration for people who may be trapped within the fire, which could buy them precious seconds to wait for rescue, or enough time to escape on their own. The masks are disposable and made from an environmental material.
