Self Rescue System is a relatively safe, simple, low cost self-escape “Controlled Descent Device” that functions as an alternative means of emergency escape when needed. The portability and flexibility of Self Rescue System provides an efficient and cost effective strategy to create multiple “Escape Stations” at strategic locations in the building. This pre-plan approach of providing multiple “Escape Stations” throughout the structure in key locations would enable everyone inside the building ready access to an evacuation system in the event of life threatening emergency. It also enables the system to be relocated to another pre-plan safer location away from fire. The system can also be moved to another office when the company moves to a new location.
