What Should You Do if You Get Stuck in an Elevator?

The invention of the elevator revolutionized the way buildings are constructed, allowing for the mighty skyscrapers of today. Though elevators operate normally most of the time, it is possible for an elevator to get stuck like you see in the movies. To prevent this from happening to you, be sure to have an elevator company in Salt Lake City provide regular maintenance.

In this video, Richard Gail of the Newark Fire Department discusses what you should do if you get stuck in an elevator. First, it’s important to stay calm. Next, you should try pressing buttons one at a time, as this could interrupt the signal and get the elevator moving again. If that doesn’t work, use the call button or handset to alert security to the situation. If all else fails, you can use your mobile phone to call 911.
