Our Services

NWMIMT is a multi-agency/multi-jurisdictional Type 3 Incident Management Team of trained personnel from western Massachusetts who assist local jurisdictions in managing major and/or complex incidents including:

  • weather-related disasters such as tornadoes, earthquakes or floods

  • joint law enforcement operations

  • public safety or public health operations

Our team may be deployed locally, within Massachusetts and throughout the nation.

We are a division of the Tri-State Fire Mutual Aid Association (TSFMA).

The team can function as an Incident Management Team (IMT) when delegated the authority to act on behalf of the affected jurisdiction/organization or as an Incident Management Assistance Team (IMAT) to support on-scene personnel and/or the affected jurisdiction(s).
