Please be aware that we have received notice from 911 dispatch services in Kelowna regarding the volume of inadvertent 911 calls being placed on the Castlegar campus.
If you accidentally dial 911, DO NOT HANG-UP. Please stay on the line until an operator answers and advise that you have accidentally mis-dialed.
Hang-ups trigger switchboard response, which if not received in a limited time frame, are then forwarded to the dispatch center.
Thanks in advance for your help in minimizing these dispatch calls.
