Salt Lake Valley 911
911 dispatch centers in Utah's Salt Lake Valley are fractured.
If an emergency call goes to a wrong jurisdiction the dispatcher must forward the call; wasting precious seconds.
Ben McAdams wants to fix this problem.
Mayor McAdams announced his solution to
Salt Lake regional 911 in September 2013.
"In an emergency, seconds count. No police officer chasing a suspect in response to a 911 call from anywhere in this valley should have to stop and think about where the information is complete. A regional 911 system is an important step forward to ensure a safe, streamlined, efficient response every time." --Mayor Ben McAdams
