EVAC+CHAIR® North America Announces Sale of Evacuation Chairs to Home of the San Jose Sharks

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., February 8, 2010 –EVAC+CHAIR® North America, LLC, maker of the original, and lightest, evacuation chair on the market today, announced the sale of the company’s evacuation chairs to the HP Pavilion, home of the San Jose Sharks, for use at the venue’s events. The chairs can be used in a building evacuation situation for anyone who is incapacitated, or becomes incapacitated, and cannot evacuate, or cannot evacuate quickly enough on their own. EVAC+CHAIR® allows incapacitated persons to be placed into the chair and evacuated down stairs safely and quickly.

EVAC+CHAIR® evacuation chairs greatly enhance safety in all evacuation situations as they allow sick, injured or disabled persons nearly immediate evacuation options in emergency situations where seconds count. They are especially important in large sporting venues where emergency responders will have a difficult time locating and reaching incapacitated individuals. As EVAC+CHAIR® North America, LLC is the maker of the lightest chair on the market and is designed for simple one person operation, there is less need to find an assistant with sufficient strength to operate the chair. What’s more, EVAC+CHAIR® is so intuitive to operate that little training is required.

"We are very excited to be working with HP Pavilion," said Richard Perl, Vice President of Business Development for EVAC+CHAIR® North America. "It is an amazing venue steeped in history. Our hope is that the chair never has to be used, but if the need arises we are proud that the HP Pavilion is using the best evacuation chair on the market, EVAC+CHAIR®."
