Originally designed as an Emergency Evacuation resource for school,
nursery or playgroup, Grab & Go can also be used as a walking rope for simple, short
walks. In addition, one Grab & Go can be joined to another. It comes in a 4, 6, 10 or 12 child option.
It's a fantastic alternative to traditional walking ropes, walking
reins, childrens wrist straps and childrens walking ropes. It can also
be used for nursery and preschool fire drills and emergency evacuation
Each child simply holds onto the coloured handle, or can be linked to
the product with a velcro fastening on the handle for increased safety.
In an emergency situation it is essential that children and adults are
able to stay together and move quickly to a safe area. While an
evacuation may move easily and quickly during practice fire drills,
evacuation of young children in an actual emergency situation may be
much more challenging. For example, most teachers and other adults have
not experienced a true fire emergency, and may be unaware of the visual
and physical effects of dense smoke and heat.
The Grab & Go Evacuation Rope facilitates the children’s movement
as a group, even in frightening situations with low visibility. The
spacing of the loops enables children to "get low and go” (e.g., crawl)
while still maintaining physical contact with each other and with the
responsible adult. In addition to promoting child safety, the Grab &
Go Evacuation Rope is designed to encourage children’s decision making
and self-help skills.
Through evacuation practice drills and other learning activities,
children learn to stay together and follow the adult to safety. They
develop self-help skills as they insert their hands in loops and fasten
the Velcro to tighten it. The brightly colored loops also promote colour
