What is an Evacuation Chair?

An Evacuation Chair or Escape Chair is used to evacuate non-ambulatory people in an emergency when lifts cannot be used. This includes people with temporary or permanent disability, pregnant woman, the obese or someone that is post-operative to such a degree that the person is unable to move from place to place without the aid of a mobility device.

The evacuation chair is foldable and easily deployed and will have wheels and rubber belted tracks to aid in a control decent down stair quickly and safely. For evacuations that require going upstairs such as from a basement, there are chairs with additional carry handles or battery powered motors.
