Kids make 16 nuisance calls to Triple 0 at Granville home

CHILDREN at a home in Granville have received a stern warning from police after they called emergency services 16 times from a mobile phone on Tuesday night.

Senior Constable Matt Walker said officers attended the home in Arnaud St and found that kids were making the nuisance calls to 000.

He said police told the kids that they could be preventing people with real emergencies from getting the help they need.

Snr Const Walker said it was important for people to realise that calling 000 when there was no emergency could put other people at risk.

"It's preventing real emergency calls from getting through," he said.

"There's only a certain number of phone lines, otherwise calls get diverted to Brisbane."
