OMEGA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supporting emergency preparedness and emergency response along the Colorado Front Range. OMEGA consists of volunteers trained and certified in currently accepted emergency response techniques. OMEGA is an available resource to any official law enforcement, fire or otherwise designated incident command agency, including state, county and municipal offices of emergency management and other SAR units, including ARES, CAP, CERT and MRC. Our services are provided free of charge to aid qualified agencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
OMEGA operates on donations from the community. None of our members are paid. 100% of our staff donates their time and personal resources to the success of our mission. All members are responsible for their own personal deployment gear -- team funds are not used to supplement personal equipment. As an inside view, consider what the well dressed responder may have during their own deployment:
We also use team gear for large or long term deployments to be able to support the group response. Gear included in this category is obtained using OMEGA's operating funds and may include:
- Backpack ($75+)
- Personal basics ($50+)
- Helmet ($100+)
- Lights ($50+)
- Boots ($50+)
- Summer (basic) mission clothing ($100+)
