Center of Excellence for Advanced Technology Aerial Firefighting (CoE)
The Center of Excellence was created in Senate Bill 14-164. During the legislative session, proponents of the Center explained that there is currently no mechanism for determining the efficacy of aerial firefighting and the need exists for an innovative, science- and data-focused research entity.
For this reason, the Center was held up as an integral part of ensuring the successful implementation of Colorado's own aerial firefighting fleet.
