The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), Intermedix and Esri agreed to build the National Mutual Aid System (NMAS), the next-generation version of IAFC’s Mutual Aid Net tool built in 2008. The NMAS will use Esri’s ArcGIS platform and Intermedix’s WebEOC software to manage and track emergency services resources during mutual aid responses.

During large-scale emergencies and disasters, it’s critical for response personnel to have easy access to a mutual aid system for managing resources. WebEOC will allow IAFC to manage information sharing, event reporting and task management in a central, web-based environment that allows IAFC to effortlessly connect to partner agencies and organizations during response efforts.

The use of spatial data to identify and respond quickly and effectively also is paramount. Esri’s ArcGIS platform brings mutual aid management data into a location context, integrating such information into spatial analysis technology that emergency responders around the world use every day.
