Best not to call 911 on request to investigate an air quality requests for an investigation, but if the City of Ft Worth Environmental Dept. doesn’t pick up the phone or allow you to leave a message, and TCEQ doesn’t claim responsibility on inner city air quality concerns, then what?

Subject: City of Ft Worth no one picked up the phone on air quality complaint, should I have called 911?
If you are getting funds from TCEQ to investigate air quality issues, your website is vague on that and your phone operator doesn’t communicate what department or who my call is going to and NO ONE EVER PICKED UP, I could not even leave a message.
I called TCEQ at 8:40 AM on Nov 1 on a business in the Bonnie Brae area upon seeing a huge black plume. I followed to an address where there was a obviously some scrubber issue, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkXEKUwp-f4&t=4s. The video ends showing the signage is 3600 Mapleleaf and 2400 NE 36th St as the location. TCEQ deferred me to the City of Ft Worth on local emission issues. At 8:43, the City operator transferred me without telling me which department I was going to and the phone rang endlessly without any prompt to leave a message. The call was almost 8 minutes long!
At 9 am we started training at the Tarrant County Voter Admin Building which is fenceline to Motiva and other industrial businesses. At 10:54 am I text my husband to tell him “Storage tanks where we’re training equal nosebleed”. The lady sitting next to me had chronic sniffing/snorting and said her nose was fine before she came to training. Her name was Karen. She saw me holding a kleenex to my nose after coming from the bathroom to wash my bloody hands when I grabbed my nose from a sudden nosebleed. She asked if my nose was running too, I said I had a sudden nosebleed.
At 12:30 PM when exiting the building warehouse from the double doors, I started filming while standing on the back steps an unabated release of (either methane, butane, propane etc?). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvuHyJfr1YE&feature=youtu.be
One of the employees out there smoking told me that is a daily thing and gave me their company name. A Googgle map search shows address of 3016 N Sylvania Ave, Fort Worth, TX 76111 is dba Rooker Transport. Their USDOT #22939 says their name is SOUTHERN ASPHALT & PETROLEUM COMPANY INC.
One of the voter trainer, Nada, said her daughter works in the area and has chronic respiratory issues.
Obviously that TCEQ has deferred you to investigate local emission events (non Barnett Shale), and that no one is answering the phone during business hours in a failure. Should i have called 911 in both instances?
Here is a copy of my ORR to TCEQ….

ORR please for last three inspections, allowed annual emissions and also FYI on complaint I left with Archer at TCEQ on Gravel road in person on Nov 1. 2019 which was the same day I saw a huge black plume in the Bonnie Brae area around 8:30 am.
Thomas Steel Drums, 2517 NE 35th St, Fort Worth, TX 76111, is the address of the business. This video, https://youtu.be/KkXEKUwp-f4, was shot from the back of the property on 36th street.. I drove to this location after seeing a huge black plume and following it, lead me to the back of the business. The smoke stack was not in use but rather a device in the covered top area.
