Escape ladders are portable roll-up or foldable ladders, which can be dropped out the window to evacuate the building during an emergency. They should not be confused with fire escapes, which are fixed stairs that have been erected off the building. Escape ladders work somewhat like boat ladders. They are generally made from aluminum or heavy plastic chain with rigid bars as the rungs of the ladder. Escape ladders come in different lengths, as they are made to accommodate either two- or three-storey homes.  You keep the ladder folded up in a box in your bedroom. When you need to use the ladder, you hook the top portion of it over the window sill and drop the rest out of the window.

This is not a good idea.
