Recurring Elevator Safety Committee Sub-Committee Meetings

FAID Review Sub-Committee

Date: Second Thursday of each month
Time: Starts at 8 a.m.
Location: Office Live Meeting  (please visit https://www.livemeeting.com/cc/kone_pro/join?id=MKORMC4&role=attend  to accept the terms, install the program, and join the meeting.)
Sub-Committee Chairperson: Robert McNeill
Phone: 425-269-3302
Fax: 425-861-9888
Email: robert.mcneill@kone.com

Scope: Review of Fire Activation Initiation Device (FAID) code requirements related to elevator safety. Alarm devices within the hoistways are tested during the initial building turnover for the certificate of occupancy. Testing of devices within the hoistway is difficult due to accessibility and coordination between trades. A device that is not operative during an incident could compromise public safety and put fire safety teams at risk.

This sub-committee will review the relevant codes within the state of Washington and advise the EAC of potential improvements to public safety.

Sub-Committee Members: Robert McNeill

Currently nothing requires a conveyance in a residence be inspected for safety issues.
