  • Maine LOSAP
    One critical piece of the recruitment and retention puzzle for the Maine Fire Service is LOSAP. In April of 2003, the Maine Fire Services Commission commissioned an actuarial study of the need for a Length of Service Award Program for the State of Maine based on the need for a recruitment & retention tool. In the 127th legislative session LD 164 was passed to establish the Length of Service Award Program at the State level. In July 2017, the seven-member LOSAP Board met for the first time after all members had been appointed by Governor LePage. Since then two attempts have been made to fund with no success. Everything is in place except for funding. We need 2.5 million to fund this entire program. We Need Your Help! It is time to be a part of the process, educate yourself, educate your Representative and your Senator. Unless we mount a united effort to educate everyone on the plight our State faces and market one of the critical fixes LOSAP will never become a reality. Now's the time, follow this link, be a part of the effort not a spectator!
