We have been asked how a paramedic would access a Body Corporate Building.

We spoke to the Metro North Team and they advised the following;

Buildings with intercom systems that allow individual access to an apartment via a special code can be registered with the local ambulance network.

The other option for the Body Corporate to consider would be to place a master key in a key safe that is registered with the Queensland ambulance services. This key safe would need to be kept in the common area for access.

As a last resort, the ambulance would break down the door; however, this would need authority from a supervisor, e.g. a policeman or a fireman.
