MABAS - Mutual Aid Box Alarm System is just that a standard way for requesting mutual during a incident. Each fire department uses Box Cards that have the alarm levels and type of incident so when they get to a scene instead of trying to figure who int eh area has what and request they just give out a card number and dispatch can page out agencies off of that card, this saves a lot of time talking on the radio and finding resources. The MABAS channel can be for several things relating to Mutual Aid, however it is most likley for outside agencies to answer the page on.

Here is the Michigan MABAS website

Generally only fire departments, but it can vary by area. If you go to the website that I listed you will be able to see who uses it in your area.

There is a movement in Washtenaw for MABAS. Many of the FDs are joining, so there might be an increase in exercise traffic.
