Police look to cut down on number of accidental 9-1-1- calls

Since January 1st, The Kemptville Office of Grenville County OPP have dealt with 366 false 911 calls. These include both pocket dials and accidental dials. To prevent unintentional 9-1-1 calls:

– use the keypad lock function on your mobile phone;

– Don’t program 9-1-1 into speed dial.

– Don’t place your cell phone in a position where keys can be accidentally pressed.

– and finally, do not let children play with old cell phones. If a phone has a battery in it, even if it doesn’t have a contract or service or it’s out of minutes, it can still dial 9-1-1.
