It looks like they are currently testing this service. It's too soon to speculate if this will negatively effect our ability to monitor Colorado Springs Fire (or EMS and Police) in the future on the DTRS (i.e. should the city make the decision to move all coms from the DTRS to FirstNet etc.) What are you're thoughts?

"The Colorado Springs Police Department, Colorado Springs Fire Department, City’s Office of Emergency Management and other emergency personnel are using FirstNet on frontline apparatus and department-issued smartphones. Implementing FirstNet supports the City’s SmartCOS initiatives by offering a wireless communication platform specific to first responders." Full news release found here:
