Accidental 911 call
The Canora/Sturgis RCMP responded on October 22 to a report of a 911 hang-up at a business in Canora. Police want to remind the public that if 911 is accidently called when attempting to dial 9 + 1 + area code + phone number to reach an outside line or features on your cell phone, this will automatically call 911. If this happens, please do not hang up in a panic. Please talk to the 911 dispatcher and provide information on the accidental dial, as this information can prevent police, ambulance, and fire from responding to a non-emergency.
