Elevator Emergency Management: Initial Response Procedures

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session
Technical Rescue

This class focuses on the steps to take on arrival at a stalled occupied elevator, based on ASME A17.4/2015 recommendations. The safest way to remove passengers from a stalled occupied elevator is from the way they walked in and floor level. The ultimate goal is to have the elevator move itself and the doors to open on their own. These tried and true practices have work more often than not and should be performed every time on arrival.
