It seems it's that time of year again, where we have to remind our kids that calling 911 is for emergencies only. Apparently, an incident over the weekend has prompted the Ontario Provincial Police to issue a reminder to parents and caregivers.
The department says that on Saturday officers were rushing to respond to a 911 call at a home in a local city. But when they got there they found that a nine-year-old girl had dialed 911 because she was upset a parent had asked her to clean up her room.
The message police want to get out to kids, and some adults too is that 911 should only be used in emergency cases.
