MABAS (Mutual Aid Box Alarm System) is a partnership with IEMA (Illinois Emergency Management Agency) and has established a statewide, non-discriminatory mutual aid response system for fire, EMS and specialized incident operational teams.  


Sharing this effort are representatives from the Office of the State Fire Marshal, Department of Public Health – EMS Division and Illinois Fire Chiefs Association.  


The system defines a resource response plan to any location within the state when the Governor orders a Declaration of Disaster.
