The Escape Rescue System may help me conquer my fear of tall buildings. This collapsible rescue cabin is designed to help people and emergency personnel get out of a high-rise emergency.

The Escape Rescue System is folded and stored on the roof when not in use. When called into service, it is simply lowered to the ground and unfolded. The cabin can hold up to 150 people, making it ideal for emergency situations. Check out the video to see the Escape Rescue System in action against a mock terrorist attack.
