Why do I need to Specify an Evacuation Chair?
For a multitude of reasons, it is not only best practices, but it is strongly encouraged through multiple National and Accessibility codes. In each case, the responsibility of evacuation lies with the owners and management of the building as well as the occupants of the building to be able to evacuate safely. If you have anybody on your premises with mobility impairment you need to consider your overall safety plans to ensure they are able to exit the building when all other systems, namely your elevators are shut down.
You have made your property accessible to those with mobility impairment, you are required to review evacuating those people safely in the event of an emergency.
We will review some legislation and best practices around the usage of evacuation equipment as it pertains to the mobility impaired as well as GEEP and PEEP (General and Personal Emergency Evacuation plans)
