Emergency services that help the ailing humanity hold significance and should be assisted in any way possible. Still, some non-serious elements of society tease the department through fake and irrelevant calls and affect its efficiency.


  • Shameful this is why nation is suffering we cannot even leave emergency services to do their work properly and disturb their work as well.

  • Easy solution. Start jailing people with a minimum sentence of 6 months for calls that result in no harm and up to 15-20 years for calls that result in harm (such as a serious emergency call’s getting missed due to a prank call). Also include heavy fines. These prank calls will drop like a boulder.
