Trapped passenger inside the elevator car presses the emergency alarm button.
On hearing the alarm, the rescue person or the people waiting to get in the lift will inform the rescue person.
The rescue person alerts the trapped passengers that the rescue operation is ON and ask them to remain calm as they are safe.
The rescue person then proceeds to the machine room., where he SWITCHES OFF THE MAIN FIRST.
He then releases the brake to start manual hand winding operations.
The hand-wheel is rotated to drive the elevator car manually ( The rescue person checks which direction is easier to hand-wind the lift. If the car is heavier , an assistant can help him).
Releasing of brake is stopped once the rescue person finds the floor marking ( paint marking on the hoist ropes) matches with the bed plate level.
Rescue person then climbs down to the floor at which the elevator has stopped in for hand-winding operation, opens the door with the door key and asks the passengers to come out of the elevator.
Then he closes the lift door, SWITCHES ON THE MAINS SWITCH and wait for the power supply, so that the lift will be back in normal operation.
