SAVE:US is a unique light meant to be placed in building hallways so that people can get handy access to an emergency light during an evacuation. On a daily basis the ceiling light functions normally, but during an emergency, you simply pull down a down-light torch, which is placed in a central cavity, and use it as ready illumination. Each torch is fitted with a GPS system that can be easily tracked by the rescue team. The emergency light is charged by standby power during non-emergency times, and is always ready to use.
SAVE:US is a 2011 reddot design concept winner.
