What are Rescue Sheets?
To put it simply, a rescue sheet is a type of matress with straps that is lifted with the aid of assistants which can transport a patient or evacuee away from an emergency situation quickly and safely.
Hospitals and care homes have been using an old version of the rescue-sheet for many years now. Evacusafe have developed a modern version.
Being a padded mattress, they are extremely comfortable for the patient and are ideal for use where narrow corridors and stairways are present.
