nanotechnology for firefighters
Received 3rd Place in the Woodrow Wilson Center's 2011 Nanovation Prize to encourage design innovation made possible by nanotechnology. Reinvented firefighter turnout gear by integrating nanotechnology smart materials that will help to better protect firefighters. The new gear protects from from fire & heat, but is also lighter and can provide protection from falls, falling debris, and heat exhaustion which can lead to sudden cardiac death, the #1 cause of death for firefighters.
