Mutual Aid International was created to provide opportunities for the Brotherhood of Firefighters to share knowledge and equipment across borders. Firefighters believe strongly in serving their fellow man, and for leaving no man behind. We at MAI believe that Jesus set the example for us to follow in the story in John 13 as he washed his disciple’s feet. We have invested in our careers to gain knowledge and skills to serve the people in our communities. During a trip to Guatemala we saw brother firefighters with the same passion and dedication to serve their people struggling with the physical and financial resources to accomplish their goal. The only option was to help. And so MAI was established for one brother to help another.
