This is the Rescue Ready Fire Escape Ladder, an emergency fire escape ladder that is fully integrated into the frame of the window. It’s pre-rigged and permanently anchored to the home’s structural components, therefore it eliminates the challenges and risks encountered when trying to find and mount a bulky escape ladder to the window frame during an emergency.
Developed by a team of firefighters, parents, engineers and entrepreneurs, Rescue Ready has an adjustable length, which enables the ladder to fit in most windows for residential houses, as well as adjust the height of the first rung. It’s also aesthetically pleasing as it’s stored in a decorative cover and appears to be part of the window trim.

With the increased use of synthetics in building materials and contents, fires are burning hotter and faster than ever before, Rescue Ready notes. For example, 40 years ago, you had an average of 17 minutes to escape a fire, and today you only have 2-3 minutes to escape.
