(1) Whenever an emergency exists in the state due to disaster, act of God, or work stoppage, as declared by the President of the United States or Governor of Alabama, and the number of persons in the state holding licenses granted by the administrator is insufficient to cope with the emergency, the licensed elevator contractors shall respond as necessary to assure the safety of the public. Any person certified by a licensed elevator contractor to have an acceptable combination of documented experience and education to perform elevator work without direct and immediate supervision shall seek an emergency elevator mechanic license from the administrator within five business days after commencing work requiring a license. The administrator shall issue emergency elevator mechanic licenses. The licensed elevator contractor shall furnish proof of competency as the administrator may require. Each such license shall recite that it is valid for a period of 30 days from the date of issuance for particular elevators or geographical areas as the administrator may designate and shall entitle the licensee to the rights and privileges of an elevator mechanic license issued in this chapter. The administrator shall renew an emergency elevator mechanic license during the existence of an emergency. No fee shall be charged for any emergency elevator mechanic license or renewal thereof.
