Amsterdam Mutual Aid System



AYMA (Amsterdam Ymond Mutual Aid) is a public-private partnership between AMAS, responsible for the system, and the fire brigades of Amsterdam Amstelland, Amsterdam Kennemerland and the Port of Amsterdam, responsible for the firefighters to man the system. Together the AYMA partners share their expertise in fire fighting techniques at large scale tank fires and tank pit fires.

When a tank fire or tank pit fire occurs in the Port Area the Chief Fire Commander of the Amsterdam Amstelland fire brigade decides to activate the AYMA partnership. When a fire occurs in the AFS region, the Chief Fire Commander of the Kennemerland Fire brigade is the one to decide on the use of AYMA.
