Information for VT Professionals Involved in Hurricane Recovery

According to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, elevator contractors and subcontractors seeking access into areas impacted by Hurricane Ian to service and restore vertical-transportation (VT) equipment should have in their possession a government-issued ID (such as a driver’s license or passport), proof of employment and a work order or employer authorization indicating the nature of the work. This guidance was recently issued by the National Elevator Industry, Inc. (NEII), which partners with CISA and participates in the Critical Manufacturing Sector Council. NEII observes that incident re-entry and access control is generally managed at the local level, not by the State of Florida (parts of which were heavily impacted by Ian) or other states. NEII member companies experiencing persistent difficulties in accessing facilities and infrastructure to support restoration of VT service may provide their concerns to NEII for engagement with CISA.
