I’ve been told that in Queensland, police and fire brigades hold keys to gain access to units and lifts and will assist Ambos to get into a unit. They’re also equipped to gain entry come what may. Expensively, but if I was bleeding out on my floor I’d want the door kicked in.
My question is: if a resident dials 000 for a reason which neccessarily means a callout and emergency services turning up onsite, will building managers be informed automatically by emergence services? I’m (hypothetically) dying here, do I really have to try and call onsite manager and wait for IVR and redirect to the oncall? Surely, when a building management contract goes in, one of the registration events is passing contact info to the triple zero?
I tried searching google for any legislation pointers. I tried searching emergency services website. I even tried searching this forum (!) But I can’t see a clear statement.
Queensland has a very different system of on-site management from the rest of the country.
Is there a BM contact number shown at or near the door so they can be alerted in anything less critical than a life-or-death situation?
A senior fire officer told be that in the absence of access keys in strata, fireys use the “big red key” – you know, the one with the long handle and the shiny blade.
