Mutual Aid Groups (MAG's)
#1
Q: What is a Mutual Aid Group?
A: A Mutual Aid Group, or MAG, is made up of individuals in a specific geographic area. These individuals meet for the purpose of discussing, sharing ideas and planning for emergencies in their area. Think of it as neighbors banning together to help each other out in a time of need.

Q: Is this like a militia?
A: Absolutely not. There are no uniforms, no rank and no chain of command. This is people getting together to exchange ideas, skills, goods etc. and to plan for any emergency short or long term.

Q: Where and when do we meet?
A: Where and when you want. Groups should at least meet once a month. The location can be of the groups choosing. You can offer to host a meeting or pick a local restaurant or club to meet.

To sign up simply post your desire to participate and the area you are located in the appropriate area thread. I will update the area lists. If I miss your post shoot me a pm. If you do not live in an area that is posted post a request for your area to be added in this thread.

I am currently working on dividing up the sections for CO. Originally I was just going to do six or seven. I'm starting to think there needs to be more. I will post a map as soon as possible.

I'm interested, and I live at the south end of the Denver Metro area near I-25 and C-470.

Edit:

Also, once we get an idea for potential members on these forums I'd be happy to share this with other forums that I am a member of.

I started working on an area map and screwed it up. I couldn't undo it so I have to start over.

How does a MAG accommodate those members who aren't prepared, the people who don't even have a 30 day supply for themselves and their immediate family?

I would think that would/should be something that each MAG would need to determine at one of the initial meetings, along with any other "policies/procedures" that they choose to come up with. I could see where it would be easy for someone to join a group and then rely on the group to be prepared for them as opposed to preparing themselves if there isn't something set up in advance.

I would imagine a person be accommodated by being provided with info and some help to get a person started. A M.A.G. is more than food prepping though.

I am pretty sure that a Mag would sort of police itself.
I don't need a year of food if I have a Bunker that houses 12, Power generation and sitting on a fresh water well.
YOU Supply the food.


This of course is an example but I think that a MAG would sort of barter itself in with skill sets and supplies depending on to what level the MAG is taking preparedness to.

I've been reading online about MAGs. I'm willing to meet and greet and see where it goes from there.

I have some free time so I'll be working on map. Colorado is a tough state to divide up.

Question for you: How big, in square miles do you think each area should be?

How does population per locality figure into a map?
