If attendees require assistance, the following information will be vital when calling 310-RCMP:
- know the location – be as specific as possible;
- be ready to provide contact information – whether it is a cell phone or a friend’s, RCMP needs a number to contact a person back. Stay on the phone with the call-taker until they have all the information that police need. As cell phone coverage is inconsistent, if people are able to make a call to police for assistance, don’t leave the area as officers may need to call them back;
- have a meet-up location (if necessary) – by the main stage doesn’t work, try to find a different location that isn’t so busy; and
- provide as many details as possible – the more information, the better.
