Police Ask That You Not Call 911 For TV Listings

ASSOCIATED PRESS

If you want to know what's on TV tonight, there are plenty of places to look. You can even search the channel listings right here at HuffPost TV.

But whatever you do, don't call 911.

A dispatcher at the Norwood, Mass., police department said an elderly person, who was hard of hearing, called the emergency line on Tuesday to find out what was on TV. And while the incident might be a little amusing, the authorities in Norwood want to make sure the message gets out: 911 is for emergencies.

Finding out what's on TV isn't an emergency.
