Mission Statement

MABAS-Illinois serves local fire agencies, MABAS Divisions, State of Illinois departments, and Cook County by providing a systems-based resource allocation and distribution network of robust traditional and nontraditional fire-EMS-rescue and special operations teams for emergency and sustained response within and outside of the State of Illinois. Accomplishment of the services requires cooperation, standardization, reliability, partnering, brokering and ongoing communication and compliance with customer specification and expectations. Customer trust and reliance on the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System is built upon personal relationships, credibility, and ongoing customer support.



MABAS Division 54 is in southern Illinois, covering all or portions of Effingham, Jasper, Fayette, Shelby, Cumberland and Richland Counties situated less than 100 miles east of St. Louis, Missouri and 120 miles west of Indianapolis, Indiana.   The Division area is predominately rural with developing urban areas experiencing commercial and industrial growth.   Interstate 57 and Interstate 70 run through the entire service area along with several rail systems including AMTRAK.   MABAS 54 is comprised of 25 response agencies, many of which are totally volunteer departments. These departments are committed to providing quality service to citizens over a combined area of 1,806 square miles. In addition, dedicated personnel from these agencies have joined forces to provide the region with the specialized services of the MABAS 54 Haz Mat Team.
