"Funding Emergency Communications"

Welcome To MMARSI



    MMARSI was created to facilitate the processing of donated items in support of emergency communications.

    In times of disaster, our emergency responders need to communicate effectively.

    Emergency communicators sharpen their communication skills through scheduled exercises to ensure that when there is an emergency they are ready to respond with professionalism and efficiency.

    Many of our supported emergency communicators are trained by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the operation of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the Incident Command System (ICS) and the National Response Framework (NRF). They follow communications practices defined in Allied Communications Publications and regional directives.

    We own and maintain a network of emergency voice and digital communication facilities that cover the greater Maryland/DC/Northern VA area.

    We are very proud to support emergency communicators.

    eMail Bid FAQ

      1. The "Email Bid" or "Buy Now" links don't work for me. What's wrong?

      All email links on the auction site require that your browser and email client support the mailto protocol. Most do that by default and when you click it should bring up an email window for your default email client. If yours does not offer an email window, do a Google search for “mailto protocol”, "mailto (your browser)" or "mailto (your email client)" and look for a result that matches your email client and browser.

      If you're using Webmail you may need to add an extension to your browser to handle the mailto protocol. For Google Chrome the extension is in the Chrome webstore at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/send-from-gmail-by-google/pgphcomnlaojlmmcjmiddhdapjpbgeoc?hl=en.

      Alternatively, you may send an email to forsale@mmarsi.org and detail the items you want to bid on or purchase.
