Congratulations to All LPIP Participants!

Jul 2017 25 | Posted by liz.smith

At our May Board Meeting, the GSRMA Board of Directors approved the 2016/2017 Loss Prevention Incentive Program (LPIP) Awards. The LPIP was created to provide GSRMA members an incentive to develop, implement and maintain safety and loss prevention programs. Attention to these operation details (and possibly deficiencies) better position member agencies to reduce claims and lawsuits. Participating members may receive up to 10% of their annual contribution (maximum of $50,000) based on qualifications. 

This year 47 GSRMA member agencies earned rewards totaling $279,324!  Thanks, appreciation and monetary accolades to the following member agencies: Anderson Valley Community Services District, Arroyo Grande Cemetery, Auburn Cemetery, Beckwourth Fire Protection District, Browns Valley Cemetery District, Camptonville Community Services District, Comptche Community Services District, City of Crescent City, City of Dorris, City of Orland, City of Williams, Coffee Creek Volunteer Fire District, Colusa Cemetery District, Colusa County Resource Conservation District, Cottonwood Cemetery District, County of Glenn, Gridley-Biggs Cemetery District, Fair Oaks Cemetery District, Glenn County Office of Education, Lakeport Fire Protection District, Madera Cemetery District, Mendocino City Community Services District, Mendocino Fire Protection District, Mt. Shasta Fire Protection District, Murrieta Valley Cemetery District, Nevada Sierra Connecting Point Public Authority, Nevada Cemetery District, Northshore Fire Protection District, Oroville Cemetery District, Pliocene Ridge Community Services District, Porterville Cemetery District, Rancho Murrieta Community Services District, Reclamation District 784, Reclamation District 1001, Roseville Cemetery District, Russian River Cemetery District, Sacramento Area Council of Governments, Selma Cemetery District, Siskiyou County Service Area #4, Sutter Cemetery District, Sylvan Cemetery District, Tehama-Colusa Canal Authority, Visalia Cemetery District, Williams Fire Protection Authority, Willows Unified School District, and Yolo Fire Protection District.

Working to support our members is a source of great satisfaction for staff. Through site inspections, ongoing training efforts and industry specific conferences, relationships are formed and strengthened--as is our pool. For those of you who haven’t yet embarked on the pursuit of this award, we encourage you to start today. Loss Prevention staff is available to guide, assist and answer questions. 

We would like to give a ‘thumbs up’ to the awesome sum of $31, 266 awarded to all the cemetery districts who participated this year. Our sincere thanks to the excellent staff at Sylvan, Roseville and Fair Oaks Public Cemeteries for gathering at Sylvan Cemetery to pose with the ‘big check’. 

We also had the pleasure of presenting Reclamation District 784 and first time applicant RD 1001 with LPIP award checks. These neighboring districts are a great example of how our members can work together as they navigate challenges. Strong leadership and an eye for the future are hallmark traits of these levee protectors.

Participating Reclamation Districts earned a total $5,016 for the 2016/2017 application year.
