Audio: False emergency call to Portage Public Safety Updated: Thursday, January 16, 2014 | PORTAGE, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Police in Portage are trying to track down a man who has been making 911 calls and reporting fake emergencies. Police received the first call, that you can hear above, in May of 2013. Several other calls have been made by the man, the most recent during the winter storm that brought sub-zero temperatures to West Michigan. The calls are pulling police away from responding to real emergencies. Officers are asking anyone who recognizes the voice to contact them.
