Delaware Elevator Assists with Training
Thursday, May 16, 2019
On Tuesday night 5/14 Lt. Dave Williams led a combined volunteer and career training session on elevator rescue and elevator emergencies for residential & commercial elevators. After a classroom session & discussion crews visited 4 different commercial locations under the supervision of Mike Smarte of Delaware Elevator to practice elevator rescue techniques, learn about elevator power source locations, and to practice rescue scenarios with the various challenges present at each individual location. Ocean City Fire Department would like to thank Delaware Elevator for donating Mike’s time for the benefit of our firefighters and the citizens of our first due area, his expertise helped those present learn much more than normal on the subject matter. Ocean City Fire Department would like to also thank the Makai Condominium, Purnell House Condominium, Oceana Condominium and Bay Princess condominium for their generous use of their elevators during this training session.
