City of Vader Earns Risk Management Safety Award

At the October 13, 2020, RMSA Annual Meeting, RMSA recognized the risk management efforts of its members that contributed to an improvement in their liability loss experience over the past year, via four different award categories. The awards acknowledge the hard work and dedication RMSA’s members put into proactively managing their risks and keeping their communities safe.  

AWC RMSA Program Manager Harlan Stientjes stated that “the daily operations of running a municipal entity are complex, but actively managing risks helps keep municipalities running effectively, efficiently, and promotes stronger, more resilient communities. AWC RMSA commends City of Vader for its dedication to good risk management practices by recognizing it as one of this year’s Safety Award winners.”

RMSA members share in the costs of coverage and losses. The efforts of any member in preventing or reducing risk can affect the cost of risk for all members. Risk reduction and proactive risk management efforts benefit the membership as a whole by keeping loss experience low, positively impacting costs, and attracting more favorable insuring partners. 

The AWC Risk Management Service Agency (RMSA) is a municipal risk pool protecting the employees, assets, and officials of 102 of Washington’s cities, towns, and special purpose districts from property and liability risks and cost. RMSA strives to solve problems before they happen and protect its members’ futures when they do. 

The City is updating its Shoreline Management Plan
