Nora Flood Comes Up With Portable Fire Escape Ladder Concept

Posted Mar 17, 2009

Nora Flood is a student at Purdue University.  At a design competition, she earned first place for a concept about a portable fire escape ladder.  Let’s say that a fire breaks out at your house, this will allow you to find a safe window and open up a ladder that latches on to window frame.  Many other ladders require a latch on to the sill, but this could slip out of place.  The concept is called “Escape.”
