Take Action Before First Responders Arrive with Slyde Evacuation Sled

Some things can’t wait. You can’t predict emergencies; you can only be prepared with the Slyde.

The No. 1 priority in any emergency situation on any school campus should be getting people to safety. Seconds can save lives. The right on-site emergency evacuation device can make all the difference.

The need for more rapid medical attention is well understood and supported by an abundance of practical experience and research. The standard practice of only providing medical treatment once an entire location is secure has forced victims to be left untreated from anywhere between 30-60 minutes.

This delay in medical treatment significantly increases the probability of preventable fatalities when recognizing a person can bleed to death within two to three minutes. By following the current practices, the medical responders only have the opportunity to treat victims that have sustainable injuries.

Every minute counts in the medical treatment of victims. The assumption that emergency incidents last between five and ten minutes is not accurate when the entire operation required to clear a location is taken into account.

Equipment Changes From Waiting to Moving Quickly

One of the latest medical equipment advances in rapid victim evacuation is Belluscura’s Slyde evacuation sled.

When time is of the essence, the ability for a medical responder to evacuate three to five victims in the time it traditionally takes to remove a single victim can mean the difference between life and death.

The Slyde is completely collapsible, hangs on the wall offering each campus building a solution for educators helping the EMS team with evacuating patients without needing a stretcher for each injured person.

Each Slyde can carry up to 500 lbs. with its web-gear style straps and includes handles designed for pulling and dragging. The Slyde gives a medical responder the ability to quickly enter the area and remove multiple victims from the active scene at a rate that is far superior to a traditional stretcher.

Evacuation Slyde Is Designed to Save:


  • Time — Some things can’t wait. Be ready to take action before the first responders even arrive. With a simple, one-person setup, Slyde is a quick and efficientway to slide people to safety.
  • Effort — Limit the need for heavy lifting during emergency situations. With Slyde, anyone can move someone who has become immobilized, regardless of the person’s size.
  • Lives — With minimal training, anyone can rescue individuals using Slyde. We made sure Slyde would be easy to use even under the most stressful circumstances.
