Beverly residents who subscribe to the city's reverse-911 emergency call list received a surprising voice message Thursday morning.
The Department of Public Works issued a reverse-911 call to inform residents that a parking ban would begin Friday evening, along with reminders for snow removal.
What the department didn't realize was their first message--which included the commissioner flubbing his words and adding in profanity--was included in the call.
In response to the phone call, one Beverly resident sent us a Letter to the Editor, titled 'The Dangers of Reverse 911.'
Listen to the phone call by pressing the video button. The F-bomb drops at roughly the 26-second mark.
(Obviously, there is profanity, so you might want to turn down your speakers if you're still at work or not listen at all if you're offended by profanity.)
