MABAS Information



Below are a few links for the community to become more familiar with how MABAS works. MABAS is a true asset to not only the fire department but also the community. We never fully understood how wonderful MABAS was until 12/31/2010 when the Lake Petersburg area experienced a widespread tornado. Our department received support from a MABAS technical rescue team, six MABAS light towers, five MABAS UTV's along  with a UTV from Athens Fire. We also received manpower and equipment from MABAS members Athens Fire, Sherman Fire, Riverton Fire, Menard County EMS, and Springfield Fire. We would not have been able to utilize the MABAS 48 technical rescue team without being a member of MABAS. No one in Menard County has proper certifications to do Technical Rescue or Hazardous Material Technicians. We need these specialized teams for incidents such as chemical spills, high angle rescue, and confined space rescues. Our department currently houses the MABAS division 48 light tower.
