Fire Drill-Employee Can't Go Down Stairs

Good morning.

We have employees that struggle with taking the stairs from the 7th floor out of the building during fire drills. A couple are due to weight problems and a couple are due to older, non work related injuries. My questions is, as a company, are we responsible to provide special means for everyone no matter what their issue may be? None of the folks mentioned fall under ADA requirements either. As an employer, what ARE we responsible for beyond "safe exit" using stairs?
