To Our Esteemed Clients and Colleagues:
Over the past few weeks, it has become clear that the world is facing an unprecedented challenge. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect our communities, Omega Forensic Engineering’s priorities are protecting the health and safety of our experts and staff while continuing to provide the expert investigations, reporting, and customer service that we are known for.
On behalf of Omega’s engineers and support staff, I want to reassure you that we expect to remain fully operational throughout this crisis and will continue to serve your needs in our daily service areas.
- We have sufficient staff to continue operations without interruption at this time. All Omega engineers and support staff are available to work seamlessly by remote access, so you will see no change in our ability to maintain our normal level of customer service, and our engineers remain committed to scheduling inspections quickly.
- Omega remains committed to serving our local communities here in Florida. All of our active engineers are based in Florida and are taking the necessary precautions to continue the same Omega inspection and report protocol they have provided for years. (To read more about our engineers, visit our website.) Our main office has been located in South Florida for decades, and we have stood alongside our neighbors through many previous challenging events.
- Submitting an assignment is easy, either by email or our upgraded submission form. Recent improvements to our submission form ensure continuous and reliable digital service for our clients, and our web host maintains back-up servers to ensure functionality through disruptive events like storms—or something like this. And, as always, you can reach Dan Larkin at firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell at (954) 255-0802.
Bottom line: While we continue educating ourselves on the recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health departments in regard to COVID-19, our operation is equipped to remain fully functional during these times.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event and we appreciate everyone working hard on the front lines to contain the virus. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have by replying to this email or calling my cell below.
Director of Product Development
Dear Friends of Omega,
It is with sadness that I write to you today. We’ve all heard of the atrocity that took place in Parkland Wednesday, just down the road from our main office. Helicopters overhead and national attention drawn toward “Florida’s safest city,” our hearts break with the victims and their families.
There is no better time than now to spread love and goodwill.
It was an honor to speak last week to the South Florida Claims Association at Super Restoration about Omega Cares. So many people came up to speak with me afterward and affirm your commitment to giving back to our community and serving others.
With Omega Cares, we will be planning a number of ways this year for us to band together and do some good in the world, but we can’t do it alone.
To this end, please email me and let me know if you or your company are interested in participating in one or more of these events this year. We won’t spam you, we won’t sell your information, none of that. We just need to know who is interested in partnering with us in the community. SFCA will create a page on their website for this initiative, and any company partnering with us will be featured on the page.
In the meantime, there are some things that can be done for the victims of this South Florida tragedy.
1. Give Blood
While the immediate blood needs of the survivors of the shooting have been met, the blood banks are in need of replenishment.
There are many locations where blood can be donated. This Monday, we are encouraging our staff to donate at the One Blood bus that will be parked in front of Lissaur & Eriks Dental in Boynton Beach from 10 to 4.
2. Donate to the Victims’ Fund
A fund has been set up by the Broward Educational Foundation on GoFundMe, and we have already made a donation there. Consider donating something, even $5.
Thanks for your time. Hug your loved ones and say a prayer.
All the best,
Director of Product Development
We care about our neighbors.
As fellow residents of Florida, we care about our friends and neighbors who went through Hurricane Irma. Here are a some ways we are giving back to the community in the aftermath of the storm.
We believe it is important to get relief items to those who faced the worst part of the storm.
SaltWater Brewery on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach is currently collecting important every day items such as toilet paper, cases of water bottles, diapers, formula, and so on. They are working with an organization that will transport these items to Puerto Rico and the Florida Keys.Simply swing by SaltWater with your donation items during business hours and drop them off. We did!
The television crew from Military Makeover® will be there as well, documenting the effort for inclusion in a future episode.
The work day will begin at 8 am sharp and go until 1 pm. If you’re interested in joining with us, please reply to this email with your interest and Jamey Bennett will put you on the RSVP list and get you directions to the house.
