SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City's police and fire departments have a new home.
Officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday, July 19, at the new Public Safety Building. The facility at 300 East and 500 South will be home to city's police and fire departments, Emergency Operations Center and the new, combined 911 dispatch.
It has a Net Zero energy level, meaning the building generates as much energy as it uses. The building was also designed to still be operational following a magnitude-7.5 earthquake.
Police and fire officials will start moving into their new building Aug. 1.
The building will be open to the public July 20-27, except on July 24. It will be closed for the Pioneer Day holiday.
