Over 142 thousand 911 calls have been received by the OPP in the last 5 months.
Though unintentional calls have decreased, more work needs to be done.
The OPP is launching a #knowwhentocall campaign which encourages the public not to call 911 unless it is an emergency, and not to let children play with mobile
phones or tablets.
It’s also a reminder to make sure phone is locked before carrying it in a purse or pocket.
