Elevators are among the most common disasters for people who have never experienced them.

You can easily walk through an elevator and never be sure if there’s a ladder to the floor above you or if someone is using it as a makeshift ladder to get from point A to point B. But if you’ve been stuck in an elevator for a while, you might be in for a rude awakening.

That’s because elevators are prone to collapse during emergencies.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t survive an elevator accident.

To prepare for an emergency, you need to understand what goes wrong in an earthquake and how to survive it.

Read on to learn more about elevator safety.

How to survive an earthquake How to stay safe in an emergency When an earthquake occurs, the earth’s crust is being torn apart and pushed outward.

This forces the water and metal underneath the ground to move.

This creates an earthquake fault line.

The fault lines move upward.

This causes a wave of energy to move through the area, damaging the structure below.

The force of the wave pushes upward through the structure, sending it tumbling down.

This sends the debris flying as far as it can go.

It’s important to remember that the more debris you see, the more likely you are to survive.

But the damage you can inflict on your structure and the building below is limited.

A building below you may be completely destroyed.

This could include your basement or attic.

In the event of an earthquake, you’re probably going to want to have the whole building under your control.

If you have an elevator, you should have all the necessary emergency equipment on hand, like an emergency phone, a fire alarm, and other emergency supplies.

You should also be prepared to move quickly if an emergency occurs.

A simple elevator safety checklist includes the following items: Keep the door locked.

If an elevator suddenly opens, lock the door and make sure it is locked.

When an elevator is in a locked position, you must get off the elevator and get on the ground quickly.

When the elevator is not in a lock position, use a ladder, ladder hanger, or other structure to get down to the bottom of the elevator.

Do not attempt to get off a moving elevator.

The elevator is being operated by an emergency personnel and you should be prepared for an incident when you’re on the floor.

If your elevator is damaged, don’t try to climb the stairs to get to safety.

If the elevator has stopped working, you can get out of the building.

Use a ladder if you can to get out.

If there are people on the bottom floor, do not attempt a rescue.

Move quickly to the next floor.

Get out of your building quickly.

Stay in the building as quickly as possible and do not leave any debris or other debris around the building or within the elevator itself.

Do a quick inventory of all your items.

Check your inventory and make a list of the items you should bring with you.

Keep your emergency supplies in a safe place.

If a large piece of debris is discovered in the elevator, it’s a good idea to call an ambulance.

The ambulance can then move to the site of the incident.

If it’s not an emergency situation, use the elevator’s automatic door locking system to unlock the door.

If doors are not unlocked, use an emergency ladder to descend down the elevator shaft and use a tool to grab onto the top of the shaft.

If something happens on the way down, use rope or a metal pipe to secure yourself to the shaft, and try to stay calm and focused.

Be prepared for the worst It is a good practice to have an emergency plan that includes a backup plan that will go into effect if something goes wrong.

This is because you want to be able to immediately call 911 to get assistance.

The safest way to stay in a confined area during an emergency is to have someone on the phone with you at all times.

This includes a rescue team member.

But even if the emergency is limited to a confined space, you’ll want to get on your phone and call 911 if there are any problems with your emergency plan.

If this happens, the rescue team can call for help.

Emergency callers and rescuers have the right to contact the police or other law enforcement if they see anything suspicious in your area.

If they’re able to reach you safely, they can then provide assistance to you.

Do the right thing when you go to the emergency room The only way to survive a disaster is to be the first to go.

If someone has a serious medical condition, they may need to be evacuated to a hospital.

But these people should not be in an environment where you have to work to survive, like the emergency rooms or the morgue.

You may have to deal with the trauma of losing someone who was a close friend or relative.

But when a loved one is in an accident, you shouldn’t have to worry about being able
