Emergency Procedures: Elevator Failure (Word)


Elevators are one of the safest forms of transportation; however, it is important to be prepared to help ensure passenger safety in the event an elevator stops working.

The University provides instructions to help UW personnel, students and visitors prepare for responding to an emergency on the Seattle campus. University units and departments can modify these instructions for their specific location(s) and add them to their Fire Safety and Evacuation Plans.
