Equipping First Responders with a Proactive Mentality
Drawing upon our multidisciplinary staff’s expertise in Elevator Mechanics, Firefighting Science, Psychology, and Higher Education, and as a signatory company of the International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC), we have developed the Elevator Emergency Education (EEE) Course.
There is no standardized elevator emergency training available for first responders, and our researchers have found that existing elevator emergency guidance manuals contain logical and tactical flaws that may produce injuries and deaths among first responders and passengers. Common risks to persons in elevator spaces, as defined by recognized governmental agencies, include—electrocution, falling, or being stricken by or caught in/between machinery and/or structural elements. Given the lack of standardized training, the possibility of one death or injury that could have been potentially avoided through heightened consciousness is haunting and inexcusable.

Elevator Emergency Education
The first elevator course for first responders endorsed by the International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC):
- Interdisciplinary lecture exploring types of elevators and associated hazards
- Hazard assessment and equipment selection
- 4 hands-on modules exploring components and hazards of elevators relative to first responders’ duties during an emergency
- Improvement of situational awareness during stuck elevator responses
- Development of safer operations while operating in elevator environments
- Development of a proactive approach to elevator emergencies to keep first responders and the public safe
