We live in a Strata Scheme in Sydney with over 100 apartments. Recently a resident collapsed onto the floor and could not move.
Luckily her balcony door was open and she was able to attract the attention of a neighbour. The building manager was called as well as ambulance, police and fire brigade. Eventually the front door of the apartment was broken down so that she could be examined and taken to hospital.
She had no reason to believe that she was in danger of collapsing and had made no provision such as leaving a key with a neighbour – she has now done this.
The Manager’s office is on site but does not hold residents’ keys and is only open between 7am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
This event has alerted us to the problems of getting access to the building as well as individual units in an emergency and we would welcome suggestions and comments.
