Do CRJs & ERJs have escape slides? If not, how are elderly/disabled passengers evacuated? Thanks.

No slides as they do not sit up high enough. The Ejet family has escape slides. Also there are procedures in place to evacuate those that need assistance.

No.... as said above... they do not have a high enough floor height. Don't hold me to this... I want to say it's 5 or 6 feet.

The E145 has a floor height of 5'3". The CRJ-200 is not much higher.

It's 6 feet, but it's measured differently for Type I and II exits than for Type III (I don't know all the details). FWIW, the reason that CR7s and CR9s sit nose down on the ground (more so than CR2s) is so that the forward doors are within 6 feet of the ground.

146s/ARJs do as well.

How does grandma get to the slide?

Oh, and what if you are unable to open the doors and have to go out the overwings?

I would think (hope) that if it were that dire people would be helping each other get out. One of my jobs would be to get out and make sure people are getting away from the aircraft.

The E70/75 does not have overwing exits. Just the 4 cabin doors.
