The Best Practices Award was established by the Fire Commission in 2002 to highlight individuals, fire/rescue departments, agencies, organizations, communities and others within Maine who show initiative and creativity; develop, adopt and improve the best ideas; and encourage and support safety and health for emergency responders in Maine. The award is given periodically as "best practices" are identified, with an annual presentation at the "Maine Fire/Rescue Services Day at the Legislature". Awards are publicized by press release and posting here, on the Commission Web site.
