CSFC Elevator Rescue Training

On Tuesday August 9th, Cold Spring Firefighters held an elevator rescue class on the MTA southbound platform.  Believe it or not, our small town has a fair share of elevators and on occasion (twice in the last month actually) people become entrapped in them due to mechanical failure or power outages.  The CSFC would like to remind the public – never take an elevator in an emergency situation such as a fire, and if you become entrapped stay calm.  Use call boxes, cell phones or yell for help.  We will be on the way!
