Fireman's Bong

Filter smoke filled air to increase visibility for firefighters and escapees
  [vote for,

You install high capacity, high flow, motorized Bongs (Water element air filtration units) in buildings in the ceiling. when a smoke detector goes off on a bong smoky air is drawn through the water reducing its opacity, toxicity, and temperature. Improves escape time and firefighters supression time.

       Sure that's not 'gargling?'

       Why don't you just have fans on the roof? It would be cheaper, smaller, have lower matainence, and have higher airflow.

       The water doesn't filter anything, just cools the smoke down.

       Mostly. It does filter tar a little and THC a little more. Maybe [davidcreede] anticipated setting his stash on fire and is worried about the firefighters getting high on duty?

       It will absorb, somewhat, those components that are readily water soluble. Much of the particulates, though, won't come in contact with the water as they are yet airborne within the bubbles.
