Hear From First Responders How We Are Delivering Next Generation Solutions For Public Safety
Why is having real time information important?
"Having timely and accurate information is very important. It determines how we respond, whether it's going to be urgent lights and sirens or it's going to be a routine response, normal driving conditions, and how many units are going to go to the call... It makes a big difference; it changes the entire dynamic of the call."
Deputy Jesse Trebelik - Senior Deputy, Adams County Sheriff's Department
What capabilities might 4G LTE offer in the future?
"Being able to send videos for various different things; so we could send videos to the hospital to let them know exactly what kind of an auto accident these people were in. We could show them the mechanism, so the ER doctor would actually get a very good picture and report before we ever walked into the emergency room."
Chief Mike Ramos - Division Chief of Operations, Adams County Fire & Rescue
Is 4G LTE user friendly?
"The equipment they issued us is a standard cell phone device. They are very user-friendly. Most people nowadays are familiar with how to use smart phones, whether they're Android or iPhone, or whatever, they all pretty much operate the same... It works very well."
Major Matthew Combs - Texas Army National Guard
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF ADCOM911
What does it mean to be the first operational 4G LTE public safety network in the nation?

Bill Malone - Former Executive Director, Adams County Communication Center
What does ADCOM911 mean for Public Safety?

Jeff Bratcher - Deputy CTO, First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet)
CONGRESSIONAL LEADER IN PUBLIC SAFETY
Is Adams County leading the way for the rest of the nation?

Congressman Ed Perlmutter - 7th District of Colorado
PUBLIC SAFETY NETWORK PROVIDER
Why is General Dynamics a leading public safety 4G LTE provider?
"We were built for this mission. We're a prime systems integrator first and foremost. We understand spectrum... We've built, most recently, the Coast Guard Search and Rescue system around the country, 46,000 miles of coastal waves are covered by that network, which is a tower based network. So we have that in our DNA how to build out a network of this type of magnitude."
