In addition to providing on-going advice and technical support to local authority risk managers, Zurich Municipal is assisting ALARM with a number of major initiatives.
Over the next year Zurich Municipal will assist ALARM in developing and maintaining a web site. This will provide all ALARM members with immediate access to information on the latest developments within local authority risk management.
Zurich Municipal have also agreed, on the request of ALARM, to attend and provide appropriate input into the inaugural meeting of the Public Risk Managers of Europe (PRIMEUR) later this year.
Eddie White, assistant general manager, Zurich Municipal said:
'We are delighted to continue our support to ALARM over the next two years. Local authority risk managers and insurance officers have a major role to play in reducing risks and improving the quality of services, however this role is still not properly recognised within all authorities.
'We will continue to work with ALARM to raise awareness of the significant contribution risk management can make.'
