My father was an airline pilot for over 30 years. He stayed in hotels as often as he slept in his own bed and I remember, very vividly, the day he told me that he counts how many doors there are between his hotel room and the fire exit on that floor. He explained to me with his all-knowing pilot voice that your eyes don’t give you a choice when they are exposed to smoke from a fire.
“They just shut. And your lungs seize up too.” For some reason the idea of that really freaked me out. I worried more about him being caught in a hotel fire than an airplane crash. For your eyes, keep a pair of goggles on/in the night stand. For your lungs, use The Saver. In the event of a fire, you have about 2 minutes to get out. Grab The Saver, put the nose plug over your nose, and put The Saver in your mouth like a snorkel. It filters out enough toxins and smoke so you can breathe, a light shines from the end of it so fire fighters can see you better, and an alarm goes off that’s made to help first responders locate you. This is a useful gadget that did all of it’s homework!
They have an Indigogo campaign and I think they deserve to be funded. I just donated!
