questionThere are 10 babies in a room and there are 10 cribs but 2 of the cribs are labeled for evacuation. Can those evacuation cribs be used for the babies or should those cribs be just for that purpose. There is not enough space to have the 10 cribs plus the 2 evacuation cribs.

answerDSS has established its own office of Fire and Life Safety, so we have our own experts to speak with when we receive questions concerning the fire codes. I spoke with Frank Maples, Chief of Fire and Life Safety, and he said you may use the evacuation cribs for babies to sleep in just as you would any other crib. Thank you for asking.
