Cabinets, Storage, Fire Blanket
Definition : Storage cabinets designed to accommodate and facilitate the rapid release of folded or rolled blankets made of fire-resistant fiber (e.g., fiberglass, treated wool) that are large enough to completely wrap around a person. These cabinets are frequently wall-mounted units, usually with the blankets easily visible through a window or opening. Fire-blanket cabinets are conveniently located throughout a healthcare facility, permitting use of the blankets to extinguish a fire burning on a person, to provide protection during escape from fire, or to rescue nonambulatory patients during fire-emergency evacuations.
