Put It Out seeks to reduce the impact of fires that have devastated families in informal settlements and townships in South Africa and across the globe by empowering residents with the world’s most cost-effective and safe fire extinguisher.
Our vision – to help save the lives of people in rural communities in South Africa and eventually everyone around the world.
How does it work?
The Put It Out mini fire extinguisher is designed to save lives by preventing shack fires that rage through local communities in South Africa. The product can be used by anyone including small children.
It has been tested by FireLab, part of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, and is market ready. The fire extinguisher is produced in Strydom Park, Gauteng, in a small factory that employs people with disabilities.
