Rescue Sheet vs. the Escape Rescue System

The Rescue Sheet solution presents a good and efficient solution to evacuate hospital bedridden patients
that can be dragged down the emergency stairs. The Escape Rescue System provides a more ample solution, 
allowing for a patient that cannot be moved or connected to life support equipment or suffering
from spinal and other orthopedic illnesses that cannot be rocked around. 

Like the Evacuation Chair, the Rescue Sheet requires additional personnel which will have to climb and
re-climb the building for each 
person evacuated. Moreover, such evacuation will further exacerbate
congestion in the stairway and, 
of course, if the staircase is compromised, the Escape Rescue System
remains the only solution.
