The new plate is blue with a six pointed "Star of Life". It joins a list of special recognition plates you may see throughout the state.
Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap said "So in the event of an emergency if someone's in their own vehicle and they happen upon a scene or they get called to a scene, this helps them identify their vehicle and their services to others on the scene."
The plates are available already.
They can be purchased on-line or at any of the Bureau of Motor Vehicle offices around Maine.
