Colorado Springs faces a lot of competition for the Center of Excellence for Advanced Technology Aerial Firefighting.

Six proposals were received by the close of business at the state's Division of Fire Prevention and Control.

We were the first to report about the local application, "Lofty proposal," Jan. 28, 2014, which was spearheaded by the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance.

Today, we learned that the following communities have applied for the center:

Clear Creek County
Colorado Springs
Fort Collins-Loveland Airport
City of Rifle/Garfield County
Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport/Jefferson County

So it won't be a walk in the park when Paul Cooke, the Division of Fire Prevention and Control director, sits down to make a decision with Public Safety Department Director Stan Hilkey.
