Valley Emergency Communications Center

The Valley Emergency Communications Center for Pima County Arizona (VECC) was created byvecc2
an  Intergovernmental Agreement between the Drexel Heights Fire District and the Green Valley Fire District in 2014. The VECC is one of three fire emergency 911 regional dispatch sites in the Tucson area. The
VECC operates under the management of the Drexel Heights Fire District. The VECC dispatches fire and medical emergency calls for several other fire service agencies including Arivaca, Corona de Tucson, Green Valley, Rincon Valley, and the Tohono O`odham
– San Xavier District.

The VECC is housed at the Pima Emergency Communications and Operations Center alongside the Pima County Sheriff’s Departme
nt communications operation at 3434 E. 22nd Street in Tucson. The new state of the art center was developed as part of a Pima County bond program which also created an interoperable radio network commonly known as PCWIN. The VECC, Pima County Sheriff, Tucson Police and Fire in addition to other agencies, all operate on this new interoperable radio network.
