What NOT to Call 911 For in Peel Region


Police are reminding residents to carefully consider what they call 911 for with an amusing video posted to Twitter today.

The video is a recording of a male resident who recently called 911 in regards to a restaurant getting his order wrong.

I ordered a chicken sandwich,” the caller says to the 911 operator. “I told [the owner] right before I ordered I can’t eat tomatoes. Cause I’m allergic.”

The caller then says he received tomatoes on his sandwich anyway.

His story is cut off here when the operator tells the caller that this isn’t an appropriate reason for calling the police.

Please don’t call 911 in the future for fried chicken mishaps,” the operator says before the call ends.

The full call can be heard here:

While police unfortunately couldn’t help the caller with his issue, hopefully this was a good learning experience for him!
