Member Announcement

We will be sharing this information on MAP's Facebook page as well, however we wanted to make sure the information got to each of our units/members and interested people. If you have found that you have been affected by the Equifax breach here is the informatio  on freezing your accounts below. We have also attached a credit guide specific to your rights in Maine in helping you plan your next steps.

Stay safe, PG

File Freeze Information

Maine’s file freeze law permits FREE freezing and unfreezing of credit reports!

Maine consumers have the right to place a free file freeze on their credit reports with each of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian and Trans Union.  The simplest (and most highly recommended) way to place a file freeze is by telephone. You can also freeze your files by visiting the credit reporting agencies’ secure websites, or by making your request(s) in writing to each agency. 

Below please find the specific file freeze contact information for each agency:


PO Box 105069
Atlanta, GA  30348


PO Box 4500
Allen, TX  75013

Trans Union1-888-909-8872

Trans Union
PO Box 2000
Chester, PA  19016

When you call, you will be connected to an automated service, and you will be asked to provide certain personal information. If you use the websites, the on-line service will also require you to disclose personal information. And if you write, you should provide the credit reporting agency with a signed letter, specifically asking for your file to be frozen due to Maine’s new file freeze law—and within that letter, you should list your Social Security number, date of birth, and your Maine mailing and street addresses.

Within a couple of weeks, each credit reporting agency will mail to you a letter containing your “unlock” code. Access to your credit report can be unlocked and relocked using that code. Your file freeze will remain in effect until you direct the credit reporting agency to unlock your file, either temporarily or permanently.

There is no fee for locking or unlocking your credit file under Maine law.

If you are a Maine consumer and you believe the credit reporting agencies are not complying with their legal requirements, write to us and we will contact those companies on your behalf. You may reach us at: Bureau of Consumer Credit Protection, SHS 35, Augusta ME 04333-0035; Toll Free for Maine residents only: 1-800-DEBT-LAW (1-800-332-8529);

Special Announcement

We are drawing closer to the 19th Annual MAP Awards Banquet! This year, the banquet will be held on Saturday January 27th, 2018 from 5:30pm-12am at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland. The Italian Heritage Center is located at 40 Westland Ave. in Portland off of Outer Congress Street.

The schedule for the Awards banquet is as follows;

5:30-6:30pm Social Hour

6:30-7:30pm Dinner

7:30-9:00pm Awards Presentations

9:00-Close Entertainment

The most important part of the evening is the recognition of our fellow members who represent their departments, MAP and the profession with outstanding performance in their duties. As awards are based on merit and nominations from the membership, it is important for ALL local units to participate and speak up on behalf of their fellow brothers and sisters.

Attached is the list of the award categories for the banquet. All nominations MUST BE IN WRITING AND RECEIVED ON OR BEFORE DECEMBER 11th 2017. Nominations will be accepted for all categories EXCEPT; the William B. Troubh Leadership Award which is selected by special committee on behalf of MAP.

***Any nominations received after the 11th WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Please take the time to copy, distribute and post this notice and award categories for all your members and encourage their participation.***

Nominations for awards must include the officer’s/recipient’s name, department and supporting information to be considered. We will then notify local presidents and the officer making the nomination as to the status of the nomination after the selection process has been completed.

In your nomination indicate whether or not the award will be a surprise. It will be the responsibility of the nominating local to make sure the award winner comes to the banquet as well as notifying their chief to invite them as well. Take the time to nominate a member as many times our work goes unnoticed by administration and the public.

Although there is no cost to individual MAP members and their 1 guest to attend the event, we require a headcount of those attending, as we are charged per plate. Please do not sign up to attend unless you are committed to coming to the banquet: If you are not sure, DON’T SIGN UP.

We are in the process of reserving a room rate at the Comfort Inn located at 90 Maine Mall Road in South Portland and will update you on the final confirmation of rate(s) and shuttle service.

As in our previous banquets, we are again conducting a raffle of items to benefit the MAP Charities Fund. If your local would like to donate an item please contact me at the office and let me know prior to the banquet.

The attached sign up sheet should be posted so that all those interested can have the opportunity to consider attending. The deadline for unit headcounts will be Friday JANUARY 19th, 2018.

Nominations can be mailed to:

Thank you and Stay Safe,

Listen to MAP Friends and Supporters Turquoise Willie Honor First Responders
"Over the last several years we have spent time traveling around the country performing from coast to coast. During our time we have gotten to know many first responders and have to become quite close. Thanks to these friendships we have been given a glimpse into their lives and the sacrifices they make every day without question. There have been several tribute songs written throughout the years, but we wanted to take their stories and connect them into a piece of work that acts almost as a mission statement to convey the pride and camaraderie that exists in this international fraternity."
