Did you know?…
80% of fire related deaths are from smoke inhalation!
I wanted to start this article for you with the most startling information I have read while preparing for Saver’s campaign because that is MUCH more than I think anyone realized. When we think of fire related deaths we think of the fire itself. “Stay away from the fire. Don’t get burned.”
Sure, we know that smoke is a big deal but when you and your children think “house fire” you don’t think “smoke”.
Families need to be out of their home in TWO MINUTES! That’s all you have! Have you tried to crawl out of your home in two minutes? When you practice fire safety in your home – how long does it take for everyone to get out of the house? Do you practice running out of the house or crawling out? I encourage you to try a real fire drill in your home using different scenarios- the results may surprise you.
YOU HAVE FIVE MORE MINUTES TO PREPARE FOR!
How will your family survive a fire?
The fire department’s goal is to reach a fire within seven minutes. Can you hold your breath for five minutes? Can your child hold their breath for five minutes? While families work very hard to meet the two minute evacuation goal, we also need to prepare to save our family’s life for the next five minutes in case we can’t meet the two minute evacuation goal. What do you do if you are lost? How will you “see” your way out of the house? HOW WILL YOU BREATHE?
80% of fire-related deaths are attributed to suffocation by toxic gas and smoke, rather than the burns from the fire itself. Fire can incapacitate or kill by reducing oxygen levels, either by consuming the oxygen, or by displacing it with other deadly gases. Often times, smoke can immobilize a person so quickly, individuals cannot make it to an exit. SAVER is an innovative, emergency breath system that combines a breathing device, an alarm, and a flashlight in a compact, simple-to-use design that can better mobilize an individual in the event of a fire and help one escape safely.
The time needed to escape home fires has been reduced to as little as 2 minutes. This is considerably shorter than the 7-minute response-time target for firefighters. This disparity can mean the difference between life and death. Saver can be activated within 5 seconds. A triple filter in the breathing device keeps breathing passages clear of hazardous gases, airborne particles and carbon monoxide – a leading cause of death. These filters remove toxic gases for up to 5 minutes, providing a peace of mind to its user, who will have more control during the evacuation process.
Breathing clearly, users can arm themselves with a special LED flashlight that penetrates heavy smoke, enabling them to find their way out in a hurry. The built-in alarm will notify first-responders of the person’s location so that they can be rescued quickly. Saver was created with one purpose: to save lives. Distributed by Safety iQ, Saver is the winner of the “iF Product Design Award” in 2014 and the “Best of the Best” Reddot Product Design Award in 2013. Available as a wall-mounted unit or portable set, Saver can be easily kept in the home and ready for use in an emergency.

Quick Questions Answered:
How many Savers do I need? Every person in your home needs a saver. I would further speculate that you would need one saver per person, per floor/level of your home.
Can I reuse Saver? Saver is a one-time use lifesaving product. Just as you cannot reuse a car seat after it has been in an accident, Saver cannot be reused after the filters are exposed/used.
Does the IndieGoGo Campaign offer savings? Yes! Saver is being offered at discounted prices throughout the course of the IndieGoGo campaign. Pre-order sales benefits are approximately 30% off retail for each unit!
Please visit Saver at IndieGoGo for more information on how Saver works, where to best store your saver, and using them in conjunction with other lifesaving detectors in your home.
