Urgent message to all SMHA Familes
Submitted By bmarks on Thu 12 11, 14
SMHA is one of the largest user groups at the Seaforth & District Community Centre and we are proud of our organization at home and away.

It has come to our attention that there have been 9-1-1 calls being placed from the payphone in the lobby of the arena and/or the community centre. We do not know who is making the calls or if they are even related to our hockey community.  What we are asking is for families to  please have an open discussion within their homes about the importance of our emergency service personnel and what happens when a call is placed to 911.  Please stress the importance of that number being used for emergencies and only emergencies.
We have included some information from the Ontario Provincial Police website and if you have any further questions, please contact an executive member.

Thank you,

SMHA Executive

Call 9-1-1 to:

  • stop a crime
  • report a fire
