This review is from: Kidde KL-2S Two-Story Fire Escape Ladder with Anti-Slip Rungs, 13-Foot (Tools & Home Improvement)
As a firefighter, I strongly reccomend escape ladders to people who live on or above the second floor. If a fire starts at night on the first floor smoke detectors on the second or third floors may or may not activate and wake up building occupants before superheated gasses and fire make escape through the first floor an impossability. Buy whatever brand you want but make sure it's appropriate for your specific needs. Ensure if you live on the third or fourth floor you buy a ladder that long or longer. Take into consideration overhangs under windows that will effect the length of the ladder. Make sure escape ladder fits the window. Use only if all other exits are blocked. Practice opening the ladder and dropping it out the window, but not using it.

You can't practice with this ladder, the deployment tab is one time use.

One review kept repeating that this was a one-time use ladder, which didn't make sense to me. Why wouldn't it be possible to fold it back up? I'd really like to practice using this ladder with our children so that if there is an actual emergency they will know and be comfortable with using it if needed. Are you really able to fold the ladder back up and reuse it?
