In an emergency, the Evacuation E-Pad is quickly and easily removed from its wall-mounted bag. The person is then transferred onto the Evacuation E-Pad, secured using the safety cross straps and moved to a safe area. The Pad features a low friction durable vinyl base that helps it move over most interior and exterior surfaces and a nylon top. It has a foot pocket at one end, two pulling handles and two webbing cross straps with plastic safety buckles.
Since the changes to the Fire Services Act 1981 in 2003, the Fire Service is no longer obliged to provide a “complete evacuation service” for premises, thus placing the onus upon the business owner and changes in the ‘Disability Act’ – which now states that everyone must have the same right of evacuation in an emergency.
Certified training is also available on this product: Evacuation Aid Training Course.
Phoenix STS is the only company in Ireland authorised to deliver “train the trainer” courses on using the Evacuation E-Pad.
