Description of Ambient execution
To help avoid paraffin related shack fires which are a regular occurance in South Africa's informal settlements, Engen distributes an annual educational paraffin safety calendar. The 2013 calendar took this a step further. With a quick shake it unfolds into a fire blanket 4 times the size, ready to suffocate a fire as it starts. By distributing calendars throughout the shantytown, we’re not only able to save one shack. We can also stop it spreading to hundreds of surrounding homes.
