Alabama Mutual Aid System

The Alabama Mutual Aid System (AMAS) consist of 52 teams organized to ensure that trained and ready individuals are placed throughout the state to assist cities and counties to effectively and efficiently exchange and employ services and resources in response to a major disaster where assistance may be provided from one area or region of the state to another.


The AMAS System is based on the sharing of commonly needed resources across governmental, disciplinary, and geographical boundaries. The sharing of resources across different divisions ensures the availability of those resources throughout the state; and reduces the need for duplication of funding, time, and effort needed to establish and maintain those resources.

Teams are identified by type or capability which can help reduce cost when these resources are shared.

The various communities and disciplines of our state have always come to the aid of the people of their fellow cities and counties and will do so in the future.
