OPP: Stop calling 911 to complain

OPP remind people not to call 911

The OPP are reminding the public that calling 9-1-1 to complain about Amber Alerts is not an appropriate action.

The statement was issued this morning after an Amber Alert rang around 3am searching for two young brothers and their grandfather.

Toronto police are directly crediting the Amber Alert system with the trio being found safe and sound.  

However many have taken to calling emergency services to complain they are woken up by the alerts.

The only option to not receive these alerts to your cell is to have your device turned off.
