Politicians are now also speaking out about the importance of deploying an emergency lift in the event of a lift breakdown. Leefbaar Rotterdam pleads for the city council to encourage housing corporations to hire an emergency lift.

Without an emergency lift, residents with a disability have nowhere to go. Not only residents with a mobility restriction, but also residents with less visible ailments.

She also tells of a resident in her 90s who has been unable to leave her home for almost three weeks. Situations like this show how important indoor mobility is.
