Why does the Township of Langley tell callers to their non-emergency fire department line to call 911 after hours?
The 911 system in this region is overwhelmed with calls lately.
I wanted to complain about my neighbour overwhelming the entire neighbourhood with thick, heavy smoke from burning their yard waste, but I won’t clog up the 911 system to do it. That’s what the non-emergency line is for.
Surely somebody at the TOL could answer the phone after hours.
