On September 28, 2022 the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshall made #CauseForAlarm go viral on Twitter with a new video of a fictitious 911 call.
The video opens with the voice of a 911 operator answering a call and requesting the location of the emergency. A young child responds, answering various questions and informing the operator that she and her mother are trapped in the basement as a fire can be heard growing louder in the background. The video was released with a trigger warning, noting that it could be distressing to those dealing with trauma, as the child cries and pleads with the 911 operator to send help.
