A wheelchair ramp is an EMERGENCY MEANS OF EGRESS to provide a life-saving exit for someone with limited mobility, in the event of FIRE or other emergency situations.
Most people think that a ramp only provides a pathway for wheelchair users to access and exit the home. A safe exit in case of fire or other emergency is important for everyone and especially for those with mobility concerns.
If you have a client or a family member with mobility issues – whether they use a wheelchair, walker, cane or scooter or just struggle with stairs – make sure they have a reliable, functional emergency exit plan. A sturdy, fireproof ramp with safety rails should be part of that plan.
Winter ice and snow conditions effect everyone in the home, consider an Amramp ADA compliant walkway with rails as a safe path to get all family members from the driveway to the front stair rails – you can even rent a ramp or walkway just for the winter!
