The Tri-State Mutual Aid Association (TSMAA) is a partnership of 47 Fire & Rescue agencies in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee working together to provide superior services to serve and protect the thirteen-county metro area around Chattanooga, TN/North GA, Bledsoe, Bradley, Hamilton, Meigs, McMinn, Polk, Rhea, Sequatchie counties in Tennessee, and Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Walker, Whitfield counties in Georgia.
What We Do...
The Tri-State Mutual Aid Association provides routine 2nd alarm through 5th alarm response to fire, haz-mat, and specialized rescue incidents generated by manmade, technological or environmental threat, as well as unusual events such as firefighter funerals or major water outages. TSMAA will mobilize and deploy resources to prevent loss of life, human suffering, and further damage to property.
Our mutual aid agreement allows the member organizations to combine resources when needed to expand the manpower, equipment and special services that are offered to the individual counties. By working together, The Tri-State Mutual Aid Association member organizations are able to provide faster responses, larger turnout, and diverse specialized solutions to emergency situations.
