Do people have a right to call 911 for a noise complaint during the Super Bowl?

While watching the game this year, i decided it might be interesting to turn on the SF Police scanner and listen to how much mayhem is afoot.

Police motorcycles line up at the 2006 war pro...

It is not yet to the half and things are pretty tame and i would say on the quiet side.  What has been catching my attention is how many code 415 calls there have been.  Code 415 is a noise complaint.

A noise complaint??  SERIOUSLY??  So, you mean that jack hammers, saws, large machinery and all kinds of other daytime sounds are equally as loud if not louder, and there is not big code 415s then.  Do people have a right to call 911 at 4:30 in the afternoon on a sunday when their team happens to be playing at that very moment in the super bowl?

This whole town has the feeling of it being a holiday.  Just as it did during the Giants run to the World series champions.  NO ONE in San Francisco on this Sunday, could possibly NOT know that the Superbowl is on OR that we are IN IT!!

To me, it seems like an extreme waste of resources on a day where there are going to need all that there is.

What do you think?  Am i a biased Super Bowl fan or an insensitive loud ass chick in general, or does this seem ridiculous to you as well.  I would be curious to hear your thoughts.

P.s.  I also actually heard a call due to a dog barking!  A DOG BARKING??  Are we living in a world that thinks that life is silent or should be?  Now i like my peace and quiet too, but daytime is free game.  If all of those builders etc can jack hammer next to my house for 5 hours straight starting at 7:00 am, cant a dog bark for a few minutes on a sunday afternoon?
