EMS evacuation tools for major disasters
There are many individual solutions depending on the type of incident.

The Albac Mat is a lightweight drag stretcher with a corrugated plastic bottom. The drag strap allows you to pull a victim across the floor and easily descend stairs. It is remarkably lightweight and compact. One person can operate it, which could improve speed of the evacuation. For hospital and nursing home evacuations, it would be very useful.

The Bariatric Evacmat works much the same way, but on heavier patients up to 800 pounds. It has the advantage of multiple height grip handles for safer lifting posture. The more rigid bottom greatly reduces friction while the extended sides safely wrap the patient inside.
