San Antonio Police, Fire Chiefs Poke Fun at Silly 911 Calls in New PSA


  • San Antonio Police Department / Facebook
Hey San Antonio, Chief William McManus is calling you out on your 911 calls. Well, at least the calls that are totally not emergencies.

The San Antonio Police Department recently shared a video of McManus reading very real 911 calls received from San Antonians. In an effort to alert the public about calling the police about non-emergencies, McManus poked fun at callers trying to order a pizza and fixing a water leak.

Watch for yourself.
And because it's San Antonio, there's a Spanish version as well. One caller even asked for a recommendation for al pastor tacos.
Fire chief Charles Hood got in on the fun, too.
Thanks for the laughs, San Antonio.
