By now, I am sure you have seen the story of the twenty-eight people who got stuck on the New York City subway station elevator. If you haven’t you can view footage and the story by clicking here. All of the passengers were rescued by Firemen, who are normally the first responders in cases like this. That reminds me, our online bookstore has several products dedicated to elevator & escalator rescue training.
For me, it’s uncomfortable enough riding the elevator two floors with a pack of strangers. Stuck? For over an hour? No thank you.
And, as a segue, here is an article that was recently written on elevator inspections. Kind of nice to see the elevator industry get some positive publicity as well.
