We all depend on lifts. They are serviced regularly and tested every year. However, they can break down if ill treated. So, please use them with care.
Press the "Door Open" button to open the lift door. Do not kick it or force it back as it is closing.
While in a lift do not jump about, lean against the lift door, or place your hands on it.
Objects in the door groove will stop the lift from working properly. Remove them if you see any.
Do not wedge the lift door open, or jam the buttons with chewing gum or match sticks.
Keep the lift clean and litter free. Do not leave bulky refuse in the lift.
Keep the lift dry. It will not work if its mechanism is affected by water or urine.
Put out your cigarette butt in the litter bin before entering the lift.
Report any misuse of the lift to the Town Council or the Police.
Do not panic. Press the alarm button.
Do not try to force the door open.
Wait for the rescue team to arrive.
Automatic Rescue Device (ARD) The ARD, or Automatic Rescue Device is battery-operated and is installed in every lift. When there is a power failure, the ARD will bring the lift to the nearest landing and open the door.
Do not try to force the door open or even lean against it, this will stop the ARD from working. Be calm and wait. You will be released in no time.
