Evacuation chairs

What do you know about evacuation chairs?

The University of Utah has purchased evacuation chairs that are located throughout campus. Evacuation chairs are fold-up chairs that allow for people with permanent or temporary mobility limitations to be moved downstairs during an emergency. These devices can help faculty, staff, students or first responders quickly move people with mobility limitations down the stairs or across rough terrain.
