Our guest this morning is Lynn Moloney, President of Advanced Egress Solutions.

Lynn is a mother of five and lives on Long Island in NY.  Prior to staying home to raise her family, she was the Branch Manager of a local bank.

While home raising the kids, she was active in local charities and schools. About 3 years ago her son's school held a fire drill. 

He had a broken ankle and was on crutches. His classroom was located on the second floor and since use of elevators is prohibited during a fire drill, he was told to wait by a window and in a "real" emergency, a fireman would come and get him.

Lynn couldn’t believe anyone would be left behind during a drill, no less a child.

She found neither of those solutions acceptable.


The inventor, Allison Backhouse, worked in a nursing home and found out during a presentation by the Fire Captain that there was no means to move a patient other than a bed sheet or blanket.

She came up with the idea to create a device designed to safely move incapacitated patients that would also be easy on the rescuer.

She has since added over 10 products to her inventory. She now carries the largest selection of Evacuation Devices in the United States.

Lynn is loving every minute of her new career and gets tremendous satisfaction from helping people find a solution to their egress challenges for disabled persons in emergencies.
