TUK-'N-KARI Aids for Mobility in Emergencies

The elderly and disabled need aids for mobility in emergencies. TUK-'N-KARI transfer sling can be used to assist mobility-impaired individuals in many situations including emergencies. This transfer sling is simple and effective for evacuations from a burning building and eases the task of rescue teams.

Most Common Emergency Uses

When you come to think about it, the emergency uses of TUK-'N-KARI are limitless. The transfer sling is made of tough heavy denier nylon – a material that will remain in good condition regardless of the circumstances. In addition, the sling, including carrying bag, is lightweight and is easily carried or stored when not in use. The transfer sling can easily be attached to a wheelchair, simplifying the task of evacuating mobility impaired individuals.

Some of the most common emergency uses of TUK-'N-KARI include:

Emergency Use Mobility
  • School emergency evacuation: the sling should be used during evacuation drills to help others understand how TUK-'N-KARI is used and how to help mobility impaired students get out of the building fast.
  • For all kinds of rescue: the use of rescue stretchers during emergency situations is sometimes impossible. Stairs can be narrow or winding will stand in the way of rescue workers and make the task of evacuation very difficult. A transfer sling is much more convenient and effective in such situations.
  • Evacuation during natural disasters: TUK-'N-KARI is the fastest option for getting a person from a home to a basement in the case of a tornado or to rescue vehicles in the case of hurricanes.
  • Inoperable elevators: Electricity can be shut off for a variety of reasons.
  • School Bus Evacuation: school buses occasionally have accidents, motor trouble, or have to be towed.
