NOTICE:  The equipment that allows the MEB elevators to operate under emergency power conditions requires repair and testing.  This will be conducted on Saturday, April 21st from 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM.  During this time, there will be no elevator service in the MEB.  The elevator testing will capture the elevators, in sequence, and bring them to the first floor.  Since there are repairs that are required, this test could be performed many times during the course of this outage.  Please refrain from attempting to use the elevators during this time period.

When the testing is complete and the elevator service is restored, an audible message will be broadcast to notify building occupants that the elevators can be used.  Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
