Cell Phones Are Not Toys Campaign Headed for Walmart
Cell phones are not toys; please take out the battery! Longmont police, fire and 911 emergency communication center are enlisting the community’s help to remove batteries from old cell phones before giving them to children as toys. A cell phone without a service carrier, even one that has been deactivated, can still dial 911. This results in a lot of calls to the dispatch center that keep personnel from attending to actual emergency calls. When you turn in your old, deactivated cell phone between 10 am and noon on Saturday, May 12, at the Walmart Super Center, 2514 Main Street, Walmart will donate a new Disney toy phone from Longmont’s 911 dispatchers.
