[Ed. – Not the most frivolous 911 call received. Candidates include the Montana woman who called to complain about the bad meth she had just bought.]
An incident that occurred over the weekend has prompted Ontario Provincial Police to issue a reminder to parents and caregivers to talk to children about making 911 calls.
The OPP’s Norfolk detachment says that on Saturday officers responding to a 911 call rushed off to a residence in Simcoe, Ont.
But when they got there they found that a nine-year-old girl had dialed 911 because she was upset that a parent had asked her to clean up her room.

The message police want to get out to kids, and some adults too, is that 911 should only be used in emergency cases.
