That’s where Evac-In-A-Box®, an innovative solution from Advanced Egress Solutions, Inc., steps in as a game-changer in hospital evacuations for multistory buildings.
A New Concept in Hospital Evacuations
Evac-In-A-Box® is a patented, waterproof case designed to mount easily to hospital beds or walls. Inside this compact yet powerful package lies a carefully curated set of tools that can make all the difference during an emergency. Let’s take a closer look at what makes Evac-In-A-Box® such a revolutionary solution.
The Core Components
- Mega Mover Portable Transport Unit: The heart of Evac-In-A-Box® is the redesigned Mega Mover® Portable Transport Unit. This innovative device is designed for swift and secure patient movement. What sets it apart are the Power Grip Handles, which not only make it easier on rescuers but also enhance control and stability during evacuations. This level of precision can be a game-changer in high-stress situations.
- Mylar Blanket: In addition to the Mega Mover, each Evac-In-A-Box contains a Mylar Blanket. These blankets are known for their heat-retaining properties, crucial in maintaining patients’ body temperature during evacuations, especially in adverse conditions. The inclusion of a Mylar Blanket in every box adds an extra layer of preparedness.

- Leg Pocket: The inclusion of a Leg Pocket further enhances patient stability and comfort during evacuation, providing added security.
- Optional Light Stick: For added visibility in low-light conditions, an optional Light Stick is available. This can be a crucial feature during nighttime evacuations or in dimly lit areas.
