Another option In addition to using a stair chair could be a basket stretcher. If full c-spine immobilization is required and the windows are removable a basket stretcher and backboard can be used with rope rigging secured to a solid anchor in the tower. This is another item your local EMS/Fire may have already for high angle rescue.

Various manufacturers make what is called a stair chair used for evacuation via stairwells. Some are expensive and elaborate on the level of a ambulance gurney and other are lower priced and compact more like a folding litter. Ferno and Junkin are some brands that come to mind. Your local EMS/Fire may already have these as part of their response equipment.

We market a retractable permanent Emergency Escape product. It mounts on a vertical wall or on the structure of a tower and when not in use it is a 6" x " column. When deployed it is a complete egress ladder with a handrail.

Have medical stabilize and call local fire department? I would have to believe that fire department and EMT personnel are trained to remove such cases by ladder from buildings. If its an interior tower, make arrangements for security.
