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 the elevator vendor that the elevator is malfunctioning. The elevator company will be notified immediately and a technician dispatched to correct the problem. Building Management and/or courtesy officers will make all attempts to remain in constant contact and let you know what is being done.
IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, ELEVATORS MUST NOT BE USED FOR EVACUATION. USE THE STAIRWELLS.
