Mutual Aid Box Alarm System
MABAS is a program that is used to make managing large scale, mulch-jurisdictional incidents easier. Larger emergency scenes often require resources the local emergency management team cannot supply due to the size, nature, and dangers of the scene. Departments, such as the Oconomowoc Fire Department, make "MABAS Box Cards" that have listed the resources needed for an array of different types of emergencies. These cards are provided to the local dispatch center, and when a "Box" is requested, dispatch simply pulls the Box card requested and requests the needed equipment and personnel from surrounding agencies.
