If you are in an elevator and it malfunctions, remain calm. Modern elevator technology makes it virtually impossible for the elevator to fall. There is no physical danger in a stalled elevator, only the inconvenience of waiting to be released. Pressing the emergency button within the cab will alert Building Management and Security that the elevator is malfunctioning. The cab number will be identified, and so too, the specific floor on which it is stuck. The elevator company will be notified immediately and a technician dispatched to correct the problem. During business hours, these technicians are usually on-site and can respond very quickly. Building Management staff and/or Security will remain in constant contact and let you know what is being done.
In the event of a power outage, elevators will continue to operate using our emergency power generator. Should an outage occur, elevator lights will remain on, but the car itself will temporarily cease moving. Each elevator will automatically return to the lobby, their doors will open, and they will remain inoperable until the power has been restored.
IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, ELEVATORS MUST NOT BE USED FOR EVACUATION. USE THE STAIRWELLS.
We invite you to learn how to implement your own emergency preparedness plans by using the resources from our PREP website.
