There is a common misunderstanding that it is the responsibility of the emergency services to ensure that everyone evacuates from a building safely.  It is not!

There is a legal requirement in many countries for employers and service providers to ensure the safe evacuation of mobility impaired persons in the event of an emergency.

GLOBEX Evacuation Chairs provide a cost effective method of ensuring the safe evacuation of non-ambulant persons from the upper or lower levels of buildings in the event of an emergency or when lifts can not be used due to maintenance or a power failure.

First of all the law does not stipulate you must have evacuation chairs.  However, there are requirements for responsible persons, as determined by legislation, to ensure suitable and sufficient procedures are in place to ensure the safe evacuation of all users of their building in the event of an emergency without the dependence on the emergency services.

Whilst the Fire Service will rescue people, they are not there to implement building emergency procedures.  No-one can be left in a building in the event of a fire or other emergency and the culture of depending on the emergency services must change.  Our simple reminder is, if you allow people in you must be able to get them out.
