Using and Storing Window Escape Ladders
An emergency escape ladder may be awkward to use, so make sure you test it out before an emergency. Once you’re done shopping for safety ladders, test it out in its intended window. Have each family member place the ladder out the window and climb out. Think of it as a mini fire drill.
When storing a portable window escape ladder, keep it folded up in a box. Always place the ladder or the box near the window where you intend to use it.
