When bad weather is expected to occur like we've seen lately with Hurricane Harvey in Houston and Hurricane Irma in Florida, many families that have individuals with disabilities have difficulty evacuating in an emergency. A ProMaster van upfit, for example, gives families and individuals the ability to travel safely whenever the need arises.

Mobility in an Evacuation
Personal mobility is an important aspect of everyday life. For people with special mobility needs who are unable to travel spontaneously and independently, having a handicap accessible van can mean the difference between life and death. Renting a van during a time of distress may not be possible, so a great way to ensure security for you or your loved ones is a wheelchair conversion van to accommodate your needs.

Wheelchair Accessible Van
Converting and up-fitting a van for wheelchair accessibility suitable for long-term travel must be completed by accredited professionals. FR Conversions is a member of the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA). There are also a number of financing options available that can make purchasing or leasing a wheelchair accessible vehicle more affordable.

Handicap Accessible Features
Comfort of travel, safety, and the practicalities of operating, entering, and exiting a van for persons with mobility needs are some of the main considerations for long-term travel. There are numerous handicap accessible features that are available.

Convenient entry and exit options are available for wheelchairs such as rear entry conversions with durable manual spring assisted ramps that are the widest in the business. Automatic doors, lowered floors, and foldaway seating options can also make it more convenient and safe to move in and out of the vehicle.

Small and full-size van conversions are available depending on needs, and the number of wheelchairs that need to be accommodated.
