Using Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant funds, Adams County 911 (ADCOM 911) will be 1 of 3 Public Safety Broadband Network (PSBN) pilots nationwide, providing a dedicated network to its local first responders.

FirstNet Technical Headquarters and the 
Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) are located in Boulder, CO.  This provides Colorado and its responders the unique opportunity of providing input on the standards and research and development for FirstNet.

Local, Tribal, State and Federal agencies in Colorado have made significant investments in infrastructure to support IT and Telecommunications. FirstNet will partner with stakeholders to leverage these existing broadband assets.

Colorado has been a leader nationwide in building statewide systems, from which Lessons Learned can be identified and used by FirstNet.
