After two and a half years, ground finally broke today on a new Emergency Services Center in Pueblo.
It will be a hub of communication that operates 24 hours a day.
It will be technologically advanced and capable jumping into action for emergencies.
About 75 first responders and those from the community came out today to celebrate.
"It gives us a centrifuge to operate on emergency disasters that happen in Southern Colorado, and quite frankly if they happen anywhere in Colorado, we can work them out of this facility," said Sheriff Kirk Taylor.
The sheriff says all of the was possible because of several agencies like FEMA, the Army, and federal, state, and local governments.
The center will take about a year and a half to complete.
