  • Abstract: This section has four groups of data relating to public safety in Utah. Public safety facilities and boundaries (where appropriate) are included for correctional, fire, law enforcement, and dispatch activities.

Correctional Facilities

Locations of Law Enforcement Facilities in Utah

Correctional Facilities contains locations for jails and prisons in Utah. A jail or prison defined by the Department of Justice consists of any facility or location where individuals are regularly and lawfully detained against their will. This includes Federal and State prisons, local jails, and juvenile detention facilities, as well as law enforcement temporary holding facilities. Locations which function primarily as law enforcement offices are included in this dataset if they have holding cells.

There are no constraints or warranties with regard to the use of this dataset.

Fire Response Areas

Fire Response Areas

Fire Response Areas in Utah represent the primary agency, typically a local fire department, that will respond to fire-related emergencies at a given location. The dataset was created to provide response recommendations for the Next-Generation 911 system and was compiled from a variety of data sources. The response areas represent career and volunteer fire departments at a variety of levels including local, municipal, county, state, and federal agencies, as well as a few private or industrial organizations. The dataset was built from computer-aided dispatch (CAD) data within the state, tax entities, municipal boundaries, county boundaries, land ownership, inputs from Utah Forestry, Fire, and State Lands (FFSL), and other datasets.

EMS Response Areas

EMS Response Areas

EMS Response Areas in Utah represent the primary agency that will respond to medical emergencies at a given location. The dataset was created to provide response recommendations for the Next-Generation 911 system and was compiled from a variety of data sources. The response areas represent a variety of service levels (paramedic, advanced EMT, with or without transport capability, etc.), but generally include 911 scene response. The data was compiled using written descriptions from the licensing database of the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services and Preparedness (BEMSP), which is part of the Utah Department of Health and Human Services' (DHHS). In some instances, the BEMSP data was incomplete or the written descriptions were inaccurate, contradictory, ambiguous, or failed to close. To make the data more complete, computer-aided dispatch (CAD) data from within the state was used to resolve conflicts, fill in gaps, and improve completeness.
