The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife has changed to digital law books rather than printed versions. 

 

"In 2016, we printed over 700,000 law books.  That's a lot of paper and a lot of resources diverted from Maine's fish and wildlife."

 

The digital law books are downloadable and searchable.  The link to them is in the menu list on the right side of this page.  They are formated to use either on a smart phone, tablet, or computer. 

 

There will be a few printed copies for those who do not own a smart phone or computer.

The Raymond Fire Department has just undergone our ISO Insurance Services Office rating review. The ISO is “the leading supplier of data analytics for the property/casualty insurance industry” These ratings are used by insurance companies to calculate premiums for residential and commercial structures.


We are proud to announce that we have been re classified to the improved rating of 4/4Y. This is an improvement from our previous rating of 5/8B, including an entire class drop in the hydrant district of our community.


The ratings system is from 1-10 with one being the best, and ten does not meet the minimum rating criteria for recognition. The Department is rated on four major categories including Needed Fire Flow, Communications, Water Supply, and the Fire Department including equipment, staffing, training, distribution of suppression assets, and community risk reduction programs. 


Check with your insurance company and see if any rate changes, which may apply to your fire insurance because of this rating. We are proud to provide improved ratings; the new rating is a reflection of our dedication to provide the best possible services within the scope of our budget.

Become a Foster Grandparent or Senior Companion!

 

The Opportunity Alliance has meaningful volunteer opportunities available for adults 55 and older in Southern Maine. Foster Grandparents are placed in schools and child development centers to support school readiness and academic achievement of children. Senior Companions make independence a reality for isolated elders by visiting clients in their homes and providing transportation assistance for doctor’s appointments and/or grocery shopping.

 

Volunteers who commit to a minimum of 15 hours/week and meet generous income guidelines, receive a tax-free stipend, mileage and meal reimbursement. All volunteers receive ongoing training, recognition, and supervision.

 

We are also accepting referrals for individuals interested in having a Senior Companion provide socialization and local transportation.
