Welcome to the MABAS Division 4
website. MABAS Division 4 consists of 26 separate fire and
rescue agencies working together to provide the highest trained
emergency response personnel.
In 1968, the MABAS system was
established in Northern Illinois to provide a swift, standardized and effective
method of mutual aid assistance for extra alarm fires and mass
casualty incidents. The MABAS system is now divided into over 70
MABAS divisions geographically span an
area from Lake Michigan to west of Rockford and south through
Champaign-Urbana, Douglas County, St. Clair County, and St.
Louis. Four Wisconsin divisions also share MABAS with their
Illinois counterparts. Interest is also becoming evident from
the Iowa, Indiana, and Missouri bordering communities.
MABAS has been used for such large scale incidents as the
Tornado in Utica and also in assistance to Hurricane Katrina.
