This page is unfinished written and therefore it needs more information. Please help the Elevatorpedia by expanding it.

This is a guide of switches for fireman's elevators that are manufactured by different elevator as well as third-party elevator components manufacturers. Fireman switches are used to activate Fire service mode (EFS) and are normally found in Asia, Europe and possibly Central and South America. This guide can be used to figure out the age and the brand of the elevator, if the elevator is not branded.

This page does not include Fireman keyswitches that are found in elevators installed in the United States.
