This means people will be dealing with rapid evacuation in complete darkness and when they are in high rise building, it can be pretty difficult to move fast without any light. SAVE:US emergency downlight system is a smart design to help faster rescue activities.

SAVE:US emergency downlight system appears to be regular downlight in normal conditions, but during emergency situation, a flashlight with an embedded GPS module automatically drops down just like oxygen mask in an airplane. This light is charged by standby power during non-emergency situation, therefore it’s ready to use anytime. People can use this flashlight and the GPS to guide them to safe place or to find rescue team.
