"The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management coordinates emergency radio communication throughout the State of Colorado. The division serves a population of approximately 5.2 million residents, half of which live in the Denver metropolitan area. Denver is the largest city in a state of 104,100 square miles (8th largest) and a state-wide population density of approximately 50.3 persons per square mile. Federal preparedness grants support Colorado's structured partnership with ARES [Amateur Radio Emergency Service], which assists in establishing and maintaining emergency communications during disasters. Colorado uses Emergency Management Performance Grants to purchase amateur radio equipment in Emergency Operation Centers and mobile communications vehicles throughout the state."
