Who are you going to call when you need help?
MOUNTAIN Creek Neighbourhood Watch in partnership with Maroochydore Police, decided to take action when an elderly resident recently got confused on who to ring when she needed help during the latest round of storms that hit the coast.
With some funding obtained via a Suncorp Community Grant, Neighbourhood Watch and local police designed and produced a magnet that lists several useful phone numbers on it including SES (132 500).
Other numbers that are included are Policelink (131 444), local government, Crime Stoppers (1800 333 000) and the Poisons Information hotline (13 11 26).
I encourage all residents to prominently display the magnet so they can refer to it quickly if they require assistance.
By having the right contact numbers at your fingertips when you need it the most can assist you in getting the help you need quicker.
I would like to thank Mountain Creek Neighbourhood Watch for providing this magnet to the residents in their Neighbourhood Watch area.
