Emergency Evacuation Chair

What is an Emergency Evacuation Chair (Evac-Chair)?

Emergency evacuation chairs are fold-up chairs, which are stored near emergency exits and 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 downstairs. Evac-Chairs can be found in large yellow or grey cabinets around campus.
