The loss of life in the case of a home fire can be quick and devastating. Often pets or children are involved and often the fires start at night and in the winter or due to foul play.

What can a parent do to help fire personnel quickly locate their children if they are unable in the case of heavy smoke or being cut off?

One answer might be an add-on or new device based on an old idea of a sticker: the idea is to have an LED flashing "x" marks the spot.

This remotely activated red colored LED "x" can be set off by a smoke detector that sends a wireless signal to this solar or lithium battery powered add-on to a child or youth's window.

In this case, a firefighter could quickly vent that window area or rescue a child.

Thank you for considering this technology update.
