This engineer set out to solve the problem of wildfires. Many wild fires are preventable because they are started by the misuse of camp fires. This student created a camping seat that also has all the necessary tools for safely putting out a camp fire. If more campers use the Safe Seat, perhaps we can prevent more accidental fires.

One thought on “Fire (Safe) Seat

  1. This is a helpful solution to a big problem in the dry Southwest! I think that your prototype design greatly improved with each new model. Considering your limitations and constraints, I think you came up with a safe solution. It will be interesting to see how this works to put out a campfire.
