Joe Correia
Founder, General Manager

Joe Correia is the owner of Maine Fire & Security, LLC, specializing in residential and commercial security, fire, environmental alarm systems, as well as remote access technologies. He has more than 30 years’ experience working in installation and servicing of fire alarm systems, security systems, and special hazard protection. He studied computer electronic, and began his career installing and inspecting special hazard fire equipment and clean agent systems for high-security and high-tech environments. He has designed and installed fire and security systems for numerous businesses throughout Maine, and worked for 15 years doing specialty installations in large corporate firms in Boston.

In 2014, Joe opened Maine Fire & Security. He saw a need in the local market for a company that offered a personal approach and customized systems for homeowners and businesses. While he is still very much a hands-on owner, he has been able to expand his team to other experienced professionals, and is excited that this includes his son, Shayne, who is one of Maine Fire & Security’s lead technicians.

Joe is very dedicated to his business, and admits being a “workaholic”. When his wife Michelle can tear him away, they enjoy outdoor activities on lakes in Maine, camping and hiking, and spending time with their four adult children.
