(a) Whenever the state fire marshal determines an emergency exists in the state due
to a disaster, an act of God or work stoppage and the number of persons in the state
holding elevator mechanic's licenses is determined by the state fire marshal to be
insufficient to cope with the emergency, the state fire marshal may issue emergency
elevator mechanic's licenses as necessary to assure the safety of the public. An elevator contractor or applicant for an emergency mechanic's license shall furnish
such proof of competency as may be required by rules and regulations adopted pursuant
to this act.
(b) An elevator contractor shall notify the state fire marshal when there are no licensed
elevator mechanics available to perform work requiring such license. The elevator contractor may request that the state fire marshal issue temporary
elevator mechanic's licenses to individuals certified by the licensed elevator contractor
to have an acceptable combination of documented experience and education to perform
such work without the direct and immediate supervision of a licensed elevator mechanic. Any individual who is certified as such by an elevator contractor may apply for
a temporary elevator mechanic's license in such form and manner as prescribed by the
state fire marshal. The applicant shall pay the required application fee with such application, which
shall not exceed $50. The state fire marshal may issue a temporary elevator mechanic's license if the
state fire marshal finds that the requirements for such licenses have been met.
