Public Safety Building
Welcome to Public Safety Building : Grand Opening Activities
FAQQ: What is the Public Safety Building (PSB)?
A: In November 2009, more than 65 percent of Salt Lake City voters approved a new Public Safety Building to improve emergency services to citizens and provide greater capacity to respond to major disasters. The facility, which includes a new Emergency Operations Center, will serve Salt Lake City residents, visitors and businesses and better meet the needs of Utah’s Capital City.
Q: What makes this building special?
A: The PSB is the first public safety building in the nation to generate as much energy as it uses and is the most innovative building in the state. It can withstand an earthquake of up to a magnitude 7.5 earthquake and is fully operational immediately after an earthquake. It will house Police, Fire, SLC 911 Dispatch, and an Emergency Operations Center while also providing state-of-the-art multi-use space for public festivals and gatherings on the public plaza. This truly is a unique building and Salt Lake’s newest important asset.
Q: Can the public visit?
A: Yes, July 20-27
