An account is locked out must commonly due to an excessive number of failed login attempts. MEFIRS allows 5 unsuccessful login attempts before locking an account. 

Users will not be able to access MEFIRS or change their password until the account is re-enabled.  Agency administrators are discouraged from creating new passwords for users who have been locked out. Once the provider has had Login access re-enabled, the provider should use the reset password process to create a new password. 

Maine EMS staff are not authorized to re-enable Login Access under any circumstances.


To Allow Login Access:

  • Login to MEFIRS.
  • Click in the box where your agency is listed. Select Users.
  • Locate the Provider who is locked out.
  • Click the providers LAST NAME.
  • Click the "Account Details Tab"  
  • Locate the item called "Login Access" and Select "Yes"  
  • Then click "Save" in the upper right corner.
