Just a friendly reminder as everyone completes their annual equipment inspection of chair lift evacuation equipment. All chairlift evacuation seats made by Cascade Rescue Company should be inspected annually before use and after every use. The inspector should make sure there are no cracked welds, significant dents or deformations to the tubing or seat mounting plate. The screws and nuts that hold the seat to the seat mounting plate should be tight and free of rust and corrosion. Any Chair Lift Evacuation Seat that has a wooden base should be retired and replaced due to age, regardless of outward appearance.
