DQE has announced the acquisition of the Slyde Evacuation Sled, an innovative expansion of its emergency evacuation product line. In the event of fires, natural disasters, attacks or other emergencies, moving injured or immobilized individuals can be a challenge. The DQE Slyde Evacuation Sled offers an easy to use, cost-effective and reliable solution to evacuate non-ambulatory occupants from any multi-story building. This exciting evacuation transportation device is a perfect fit with DQE’s philosophy of bringing high-quality, practical, and affordable equipment to the healthcare and emergency response community.
The Survey team was very impressed with the comprehensiveness of our plan and incorporation of the PACE evacuation kits, in fact, they noted in their final report that, “…A best practice appears in evacuation planning to include specialized kits for full accountability of patients.” This is a significant finding as the tracking and care of patients/residents during an evacuation is of utmost importance for their well-being and safety.
