Before Event During Event After Event Resources

After the Event

  • Once the hurricane is over, check the elevator machine room, all electrical equipment, hoistways and pits before starting the elevators.
  • If water has affected any of these areas, have the equipment inspected before placing the elevators back in service.
  • Do not attempt to start the elevator or call for service if the power is out.
  • Taking these precautions may prevent long elevator shutdowns, unnecessary repair expenses, inconvenience and personal injury.
