Abstract

Pollution and rising greenhouse gases has led to an ever increase in global temperatures. Because of this forest fires has become a growing threat all over the world. In this project I have investigated how forest fires work and the process of extinguishing them. With a focus on the personal equipment I have aimed to improve the working environment and the safety for firefighters. Using the design process this problem is tackled from a holistic point of view. The result is a professional safety product called Phoenix. A lightweight portable oxygen harness with an attached emergency mask.
