EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The number of 911 calls dropped 31 percent during the Super Bowl, compared to a typical Sunday at the SNOCOM emergency dispatch center for southwest Snohomish County.

Executive Director Debbie Grady told The Daily Herald (https://bit.ly/1ipxgtd) the number of calls spiked up 75 percent immediately after the Seahawks won.

The SNOPAC dispatcher center reported a similar pattern and said most of the calls after the game were noise complaints about fireworks.
