AUGUSTA, Maine--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2019--

The Maine Emergency Management Agency’s website, www.maine.gov/mema was honored with a Gold AVA Digital Award at the 2019 awards competition.

The newly updated www.maine.gov/mema website was designed with the user in mind; it is accessible, relevant, and combines an intuitive architecture with clear calls to action. The website is mobile friendly and displays latest news and emergency alerts and has been streamlined from thousands of pages to fewer than 150.

The site now utilizes the Maine.gov content management system, a powerful web-based tool that allows agency administrators to easily manage their website. The content management system has gained in popularity with more than two dozen sites adopting the platform in the past 12 months.

The AVA Digital Awards is an international competition that recognizes excellence by creative professionals responsible for the planning, concept, direction, design and production of digital communication.
