Hoax and malicious calls

Making hoax and malicious calls is a criminal offence. Such calls tie up emergency crews so they are not available for real, potentially life-threatening incidents.

The Fire and Rescue Service receives dozens of such calls every year, made from payphones, mobile phones and landlines. We also have issues with people deliberately smashing break-glass alarm points.

Malicious callers are not only an enormous drain on resources; their thoughtless behaviour endangers the lives and safety of the public.

All calls to our Control room are recorded and can be instantly traced back to the caller. This doesn’t just apply to landlines; even calls from payphones and mobiles are taped and can be traced. The 141 function or equivalent does not block the number when you call 999.

The consequences of making hoax or malicious calls
