Evacuation chairs

The University of Utah has installed evacuation chairs, which are located throughout campus. Evacuation chairs are fold-up chairs which allow for people with permanent or temporary mobility limitations to be moved down stairs 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.
