Firefighter only carry the very minimum requirements needed in saving people's lives as they work in tall buildings. Although they have turnout gears and equipment, it is insufficient for them to completely eliminate the fire. Thus they use ripped doors and sofas to prevent from danger. However, it is difficult for them to carry heavy items such as the door, or the sofa. But it can hinder their movement. In order to resolve such problem, Shield has been combined with fire hose cabinet. Unlike the previous fireplug door, which can only be used as a door, the new fire hose cabinet door known as ‘Rescue Shield’ can act as both door and shield.
