Have you ever heard the saying that, for a “burning house” call, 9-1-1, but not for a “burning question?" Well it’s true. 9-1-1 is for emergencies only and not for information.
If you join us on Twitter, using #asktps911 Monday August 27, 2012 between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. for a live-tweet, you'll have your chance to ask those “burning questions” regarding 9-1-1.
Now is the time to ask. Are you unclear about what information 9-1-1 will ask for when you call? Why 9-1-1 asks so many questions? Are you unsure if a particular situation is a 9-1-1-type emergency? Don’t be shy. Ask us.
And how about your kids? What would they like to know? They are never too young to learn what 9-1-1 is all about. We’re here to help.
If you're at the CNE on Monday August 27, 2012, be sure to stop by and say hello. Tracy Finn @TPS_911ENP and Sandy Briell @TPS86134, along with a few Toronto Police Dispatchers, will be at our booth between the Food Building and Kids’ World from 11 am - 7 pm. Our booth is full of great information for you and some fun activities for the kids. They can try on a police uniform and you can also take their photo behind a police officer cut-out.
