If there's a fire or other emergency, firemen can quickly spot the "red ball" and get right into the rooms where children are sleeping. The time that's saved might save a life, Hatcher said. Studies by fire prevention experts indicate that children, in their fright, often hide under their bed or in a closet when fire breaks out, and may suffocate before firemen can find them. Also, infants are left helpless in a fire if the parents are unable to get to the room.
