TWO WINDOW washers have called Emergency Triple Zero (000) after becoming stuck on their platform at a building on Constitution Avenue.

They are safe, however, the system they use to move the vehicle is not responding.

ACT Fire & Rescue have sent the Bronto Aerial Platform and a pumper to assist the window washers.

ACT Ambulance Service is also in attendance.


The two men have been safely lowered to the ground.

A firefighter was able to fix the mechanical issue of the hydraulic platform they were working on.

ACT Fire & Rescue did not have to use its Bronto Aerial Platform.

The two men had been working on the top of the building on the fourth floor. No injuries were reported.

Clarification: One man was a window cleaner, the other man a mechanic.
