Evacu-Trac is an evacuation chair used to move people with a disability or injury down stairways quickly and safety during an emergency. Evacu-Tracs are stored in cabinets near the top of stairways around campus.
During an emergency, the passenger is tranferred from their wheelchair to the Evacu-Trac. Once positioned in the Evacu-Trac, velcro straps are wrapped securely around the passenger's torso and lower legs. The passenger is then wheeled to the stairway for descend.
Below are some videos describing the use of Evacu-Tracs. Videos require the use of Microsoft Media Player or Real Player, depending on the option of your choice.
