Sandy previously used Valley Emergency Communications Center — which serves several Salt Lake County cities — to handle it’s emergency calls.

The switch was prompted by new state-of-the-art technology at the Salt Lake Dispatch Center, according to a news release, and is expected to produce better communication flow to police and fire units.

The change also is expected to save Sandy money, the release states.

The non-emergency number in Sandy for contacting police and fire dispatch will now be 801-799-3000. Residents with emergencies should call 911.
