Evac+Chair will be discussing the importance of inclusivity in emergency evacuation plans and procedures while exhibiting its extensive range of evacuation chairs at FM Expo 2019, 17-19 September, Dubai World Trade Centre.
The nature of risk is changing – we’re building taller, more accessible buildings with increased evacuation risks. As a result, more consideration and careful planning is needed to ensure evacuation procedures effectively prioritise the safety of every occupant, especially those with disabilities or mobility-impairments.
At FM Expo 2019, Evac+Chair will be demonstrating its range of evacuation solutions which are designed to help safely and easily transport disabled or mobility-impaired occupants down flights of stairs. As visitors are able to try out the chairs for themselves, they can experience just how easy they are to use, whilst understanding the vital role they play in an emergency situation.
Gary Hicks, manager, Evac+Chair International Middle East will also be speaking at the event on 18 September at 1:30pm in the Theatre of Inspiration to discuss the crucial aspects of planning, testing and training when developing and implementing effective evacuation procedures.
Achieving effective emergency evacuation procedures is more than a simple ‘tick box’ response to risk. Best practice evacuation procedures should form part of your building or organisation’s culture with transparent communication and frequent training. Everyone needs to understand their roles and responsibilities in an emergency to enable a swift response which minimises risk to life.
Evac+Chair International has been manufacturing its world-leading Evac+Chair in the UK for over 30 years. Every Evac+Chair is designed to help organisations effectively plan and prepare for safe evacuation in multi-storey buildings.
