Page 6 Huntley Park District receives award for loss control program Trying to make its parks and recreational programs safe and cost- effective to the public has been a constant goal of the Huntley Park District. Apparently, their efforts have paid off. Since 1986, the Huntley Park District has been a member of the Park District Risk Management Agency (PDRMA), which is a self- insurance risk pool made up of 118 Illinois park and recreation agencies.The risk pool annually conducts a review of its members' loss prevention programs. Last week, the Huntley Park District learned from PDRMA that its loss control program was rated as "excellent.'' In addition, the district was awarded PDRMA's highest award, which is accreditation. This award is in recognition ofthe district having implemented a comprehensive safety program by averaging a 95% score on the past two safety program evaluations. Paul Ostrander and Betsey Warrington, safety coordinators for the district, were very appreciative of the award. They also expressed appreciation ofthe hard work by the staff, who have attempted to promote the idea of safe operations in every facet of their programming and facilities. PDRMA is an extension of each member agency, since they are dedicated to serving the risk management needs of park and recreation agencies ~ this is all that they do. With PDRMA's assistance, the parks and programs have become safer for agency employees and the public. Fewer losses reduces the cost of insurance, which saves tax dollars. Risk management is part of the Huntley Park District' s management system which benefits everybody.
