The Town of Twisp has been recognized for its risk management practices by the Association of Washington Cities Risk Management Service Agency (RMSA). The award goes to RMSA members that contributed to an improvement in their liability claims experience over the past year.
“The awards acknowledge the hard work and dedication RMSA’s members put into proactively managing their risks and keeping their communities safe,” according to a press release. “Actively managing risks and engaging in risk management helps keep municipalities running effectively, efficiently, and promotes stronger, more resilient communities.”
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, according to the release. RMSA is a municipal risk pool protecting the employees, assets, and officials of 106 of Washington’s cities, towns, and special purpose districts from property and liability risks and cost.
