What are evacuation aids?

An evacuation aid is the collective name for products that can simplify the evacuation of a person. An evacuation normally takes place during an emergency. For example during a fire or a gas leak. In the event of such an emergency, not everyone will be able to leave the building on its own. This may be due to a permanent or temporary disability. With an evacuation aid, a rescue worker can bring the ‘victim’ to safety.

Below you will find a list of the different types of evacuation aids that are commonly used across the globe.
