Tallahassee girl mistakenly calls 911, sends TPD an adorable apology letter
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - A young Tallahassee girl sent the Tallahassee Police Department a sweet apology letter after mistakenly calling them about a medical emergency, according to a Facebook post by TPD.
One of the School Resource Officers was called to help a little girl at school who said she was having a medical emergency, but upon the officer’s arrival, he learned the girl had mistakenly called 911.
The next day, the young girl took it upon herself to write the officer an adorable apology letter and they are glad the young girl is okay, TPD said.
On their Facebook post, TPD wanted to give a few tips for teaching children when to call 911.
TPD says it is important to teach children that a 911 emergency is when someone need help right away because of an injury to an immediate danger.
A few examples would be:
- A fire
- Someone having trouble breathing or choking
- Someone is unconscious after an accident
- Crime such as a break-in happening
TPD also added that it is important to remind children that while they shouldn’t give away personal information to a stranger, it’s okay to trust the friendly operators at the Consolidated Dispatch Agency.
