Salt Lake Valley Emergency Communications Center (VECC), has instituted a regional notification system that will be able to send telephone notifications to residents and businesses within VECC's area impacted by, or in danger of being impacted by, an emergency or disaster. This system, called DCC, will be used by emergency response personnel to notify those homes and businesses at risk with information on the event and/or actions (such as evacuation) the emergency response personnel are asking be taken. As allowed by statute, the system utilizes the region's 9-1-1 database, provided by the local telephone company, and thus is able to contact land-line telephones whether listed or unlisted. It is TTY/TDD capable.
Because the system uses the 9-1-1 database, only land-line numbers are in the system. If you have an alternative telephone system provider, such a cable network or Voice over IP provider (VoIP) or cellular telephone and would like to be notified over that device, or if you would like an email notification, you must register those telephone numbers and/or email address for use by the system.
