Taber/Vauxhall RCMP received 24 9-1-1 hang-ups, misdials or open line calls during the month of April. 9-1-1 calls go to Taber Police Service initially as the local 9-1-1 center and then are sent to RCMP dispatch if they are outside of the Town of Taber.
A 9-1-1 call takes the time of two dispatchers to take the initial call and then dispatch the call to an officer. RCMP officers, if they are able to locate where the 9-1-1 call is coming from, or if there are any safety concerns, need to attend to ensure the safety of the individual who called 9-1-1.
Taber RCMP are reminding parents to take batteries out of old phones before giving them to children to play with. Also, keep an eye on your children if they do have your phone and teach them about when it is appropriate to call 9-1-1. RCMP are also asking individuals if you do call 9-1-1 in error, please stay on the phone with our dispatchers to confirm you are safe.
