Hoax calls: You could be putting someone at risk

Share by emailShare by email

Every time someone makes a hoax or ‘joke’ 999 call, they put someone else’s life in danger.

If we are sent to a hoax call, it means we're not available when someone really needs our help. It could be a matter of life or death.

Hoax calls can be traced and callers run the risk of a heavy fine and even a prison sentence.
