Why We Do What We Do!
Combining our love to ride and our love for the elevator industry, Elevator Riders Riding Club raises funds for the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation specifically to educate the public on elevator and escalator safety for children. You might think that this is common knowledge, however the stories listed below prove that there is still so much work to do!
It is important to note that while the articles below are not the norm when it comes to vertical transportation equipment they do make the case for the important work that the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation does. Each year the EESF sets goals for reaching a huge number of children with their educational Safe-T Rider
program. Without donations the program cannot be purchased and sent out to children. This is where we come in.
Elevators and escalators, when properly maintained, adjusted and inspected are one of the safest forms of transportation in the world. The accidents linked below are the result of improper riding behavior which education can assist in preventing in the future.
