The InterMountain Alliance offers a forum for mountain communities to assist each other in preparing for disaster and in planning for our future.
IMA has representatives from a number of mountain communities, both incorporated and unincorporated, including Allenspark, Lyons, Nederland, Ward, Gold Hill, Jamestown, Bar-K, and Left Hand Canyon. We welcome participation by other Boulder mountain communities. Our meetings are also attended by a variety of local, state and federal agencies, as needed, and several non-profits such as the United Way.
Community-based emergency preparedness was originally the focal point of the group as we focused on understanding the needs and desires of mountain residents during and after a natural disaster. Working closely with the Boulder County Office of Emergency Management, we have documented the resources present in each town and devised community specific plans to support our local volunteer fire departments. We have also created a partnership with BCARES (Boulder County Amateur Radio Emergency Services) to design the Mountain Emergency Radio Network.
