Making Cities Tsunami-Safe

Adapted specifically for tsunamis, Life Keeper imagines an entirely new infrastructure of street lamps that double as protection during disasters. Like deep-rooted trees, each lamp is reinforced and connected to form an underground scaffolding that’s steadfast against rushing water. Attached to each is a floating shield that 4-5 stranded persons can use as protection from floating debris. Inside they’ll also find life jackets, a medical kit and a emergency call system to give them the best chance of survival.
