We are so sad that we couldn’t all get together this year to celebrate these fabulous 911 Professionals! All recipients will receive their gifts and awards from the board by delivery this year and we will share those pictures as soon as we get them completed. We hope that you all stay safe and we hope to see you in the Spring 2021 in Manhattan! We thank each and every one of you that submitted an award. It was very hard for the Colorado NENA/APCO Board to choose one for each catagory. We thank them for being our voting partners.
