FALSE 911 CALLS
The Guelph Police report that unintentional calls to 911 from cell phones continue to be an ongoing issue. The 911 Call Centre receives multiple false 911 calls every day. Each call received by a 911 call taker is processed as an emergency until proven otherwise.

Many of these investigations find that a small child has either taken a parent's cell phone or a child has been given an old cell phone to play with. A phone does not need a sim card in it to be able to call 911.

Please place your cell phones on standby when you are not using them. If you are going to let your child play with an old cell phone, remove the battery.
