KARA108RG – Flood Emergency Equipment

About

A modular floating pontoon to make rescue operations in flood hit areas more efficient

As part of the research for this project, a lack of ready to use flood equipment was observed during flood emergencies in densely populated city like Mumbai. KARA108RG is a modular floating pontoon-kit designed to assist government authorities in mass evacuation of general public in these scenarios. It is part of a wider Flood Emergency Equipment design solution, aimed at securing safe movement of people from one place to another during flood situations.
