Though clearly only valid for smoke and toxic fumes, though not likely to help much with full on fire.
Be lucky
Its hard enough to get most pax to pay attention to the safety demo/ not walk around when the FSB sign is on/turn oiff their phone... instructing them how to use a smoke hood? Unlikely.

I had a regular pax who used to carry a personal one, I considered it for a time after seeing them offered in many Asian hotels and subway stations..
