This course is designed for the trained professionals that respond to emergencies involving stalled elevators. Emergency personnel with inadequate training in handling Elevator emergencies are exposed to an increased risk of injury or death to both the victim and themselves. This comprehensive course will provide emergency responders with intensive classroom and hands-on training on how to safely and effectively remove passengers from stalled elevators. Basic procedures will be covered in this program.

Topics include: nomenclature, safety, how an elevator functions, construction, elevator safety devices, possible equipment needed, initial response steps, restarting a stalled elevator, lock/out – tag/out procedures, elevator doors, use of hoistway door keys/pick tools, poling, removal of passengers from stalled elevators, and manually lowering a hydraulic elevator.

Included in your registration for this class is a complimentary seat in the Intro to Elevator Emergencies lecture being held on Friday evening. Attending the introductory lecture is optional but highly recommended because it will serve as a solid review prior to participating in the hands-on training. You do NOT need to register separately for the lecture.
