The Petrochemical Mutual Aid Organization (PMAO):
In 2002, the Petrochemical Mutual Aid Organization used funding provided through CAER to put an AlphaNumeric Paging System in service. With the new system activated, PMAO dispatch centers can now more rapidly notify member compan of requests for mutual aid assistance.
PMAO has established several specific Task Force packages to provide flammable liquid foam fire fighting support to requesting municipal agencies. Each geographically defined Task Force will include a foam aerial, a foam engine, and bulk foam tender for mutual aid support to requesting municipal agencies and non-member companies.
CAER has also funded new personnel accountability tags that were obtained by PMAO and distributed to municipal agencies. Industry and municipal agencies will now have a common, compatible accountability tagging system. Each PMAO-member company purchased the tags for its organization.
