More Training for Professional Staff

Over the last two months, members of Local 2029 have received additional training in elevator emergencies and stabilization procedures. Every year we respond to numerous calls for people trapped in elevators and motor vehicle accidents, making this training very useful for us. Unfortunately, as our instructors pointed out, many important task need to be performed within the first few minutes upon arriving at these emergencies. With our below standards staffing levels (not having enough qualified personnel on scene quickly), we are putting both ourselves and the public at risk.
