Please Help Us and Take The "Sit-Rep" Survey
As the COVID-19 pandemic crisis wreaks havoc on our families, our communities and our health care system we are proud of the courage and commitment our members on the front lines exhibit everyday for the people of Maine. We also know how difficult it is for first responders to be working in unsafe conditions and fear that they or loved ones will be exposed to this virus in ADDITION to the general public.
Now, more than ever, it is critical that we build solidarity and help our members and fellow LEO’s as we struggle through this difficult time. Please help us and take a moment to fill out this survey to let us know what your needs are and how we can be most responsive and effective during this crisis.
The survey is anonymous and its results will help us in showing the needs that are out there from equipment, training and health to how we can support EACH OTHER while waiting for any meaningful response from government. The link to the survey can be found on the "Member Home" page which you can access from the Member Resources Menu on the left of the maine page. (You will need to be a registered MAP member to enter the member resource area. You can also register from the left hand menu by using the "Log In" link)
As we navigate through these uncertain times, MAP would like to know what your needs are and how we can support you, your family and the broader community through this crisis.
This crisis also makes clear what MAP has believed and supported for 47 years; it’s our members and brother and sister LEO’s who help stand the line in keeping our communities and country running. Along with fellow first responders, and great people from the ranks of health care workers, grocery clerks, janitors, truck drivers, ware house workers, manufacturing workers and many others are on the front lines of this crisis and are doing essential work.
We want to do all that we can to support all those who have a daily hand in keeping Maine strong. Go to the survey with the link found in the member Home area
You taking a second to share your thoughts on how we can best do that is the first step. Thanks for all that you are doing. Stay safe and watch out for each other.
The survey will be available through April 15th, 2020
