Maine Legislature LENS
Legislative Emergency Notification System
The Legislative Emergency Notification System (LENS) is an internal mass notification system that sends time-sensitive emergency notifications to legislators and legislative employees instantly. Once registered, legislators and legislative employees will receive emergency notifications, such as building emergencies, office closures and delayed openings through their designated communication devices. Acceptable devices include cell phones, landline phones, Blackberrys, text pagers and personal email accounts.
Legislators and legislative employees may register for LENS here.

The Legislature rarely closes its offices or cancels or delays its legislative sessions. Occasionally, due to inclement weather or an emergency situation, legislative operations are affected. In those cases, the Legislature makes every reasonable effort to notify members of the public of changes in schedules or operations. Usually public service announcements are made on area television and radio stations. Notices are also posted on the Legislature's website.
