Debra Weinberg

Matthew Radzinski

Price range are much less starting at $1,595.00 for a basic model Evac Chair 300h up to $3,000.00 for a battery operated version like the Evac chair 800h model.

Egress for Schools are critical as you will never know when someone could be injured or if a student may have reduced mobility; even a teacher or visitor

Parents are very concerned about public school budgets considering Egress Evacuation chairs and other mobility resources. and training for faculty and staff.
Matthew Radzinski
46:13
Budgets are a big concern and we take that into consideration when planning the appropriate equipment for each districts and their schools needs

Is this a recommendation or requirement for DD Councils that have their office located in facilities that are not disability friendly such as those in the slide?
Matthew Radzinski
01:03:17
Not sure if the DD Councils require the chairs, however it is always highly recommended to have them in buildings that will have people with mobility disabilities to assist in an emergency
Bryan Russell
01:05:28
What happens to the person's existing chair? Do we leave it in the building or does someone need to bring it down? Are wheelchairs typically covered under insurance as durable medical equipment?
Kenneth Shiotani
01:07:56
Individual wheelchairs do end up having to left behind in an emergency evacuation but hopefully can be retrieved when the emergency situation has resolved.
Stephanie Duke
01:08:04
I would add that DD councils as an employer and entity that serves the public needs to ensure that disaster/emergency plans afford meaningful access to evacuation services. It might be they need to vertically align Continuity of Operation Plans (COOP) or emergency operation plans (EOP) with an owner of a public building or with a local Emergency management department. Depends on the specific circumstances.

The powered evacuation chair could possibly be a temporary remedy for an elevator outage in a residential building though of course the elevator should be repaired promptly.
