Hi, We are a nursery looking for an evacuation chair/equipment for use with a child under 5.  We haven't found anything that is suitable yet.  It seems there are no evac chairs for children.  Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions about safe evacuation from the first floor of a building with a non-mobile child, who will be distressed with the alarm going off.  Our recent fire drill has highlighted our need to find a safe solution. Scooping the child up and moving down the fire escape proved to be risky, not least because the child is getting heavier. Any ideas would be great.  Many thanks :)
