It will be great to meet up with you. Jim Sandas will be lecturing also. We just did the RIT class in North Attleboro and it went pretty good...

Don't know Barry other than to say the firefighters were not moving around very much and did not know how to shut them down.

Hi Barry;
Reviewing your Phase I and Phase II operatons in your existing buildings is an excellent way to get the members used to the systems. As for actual hands-on with an elevator, you have to have a licensed elevator mechanic with you in order to open an elevator hoistway. That may sound bad, but it assures safety. Find out if any elevator companies are doing any work in the city, and seek out the Service Manager. They will be your key to getting more information, and further access to the systems. Reassure them that you are not looking for shortcuts, but want to perfect safe operations. That is always their big concern. Always feel free to email me any questions and I will try to answer it for you.

Stay safe.
