There are various perils that our facilities face throughout the year like fires, wind, hail, thunderstorms, and winter weather resulting in claims and losses when they strike. In this session, you will hear about claim trends that have impacted Texas counties in the past few years. The speakers will discuss best practices for before, during and after an event that can mitigate both short-term as well as long-term effects to your facilities.

||Protecting Vehicles and Mobile Equipment from Losses
Speaker: Mr. Jack Coffey, Risk Control Consultant, TAC
Bad weather and other perils don’t just affect buildings and facilities. Vehicles and mobile equipment are assets that are critical to county operations. The loss of use or even worse, total loss of vehicles and equipment can set back your county operationally and financially. In this session, attendees will learn about key perils facing vehicles and mobile equipment as well as strategies that can reduce or eliminate their risk of losses.
||Got Roofs: What You Do Can Make a Difference
Speaker: Mr. Larry Boccaccio, Risk Control Consultant, TAC
Roofs are often one of the most overlooked building features for our facilities, yet they can lead to huge costs and headaches for facilities and maintenance staff. In this session, attendees will get an overview of roofing systems and general care and maintenance. Attendees will also learn about the importance of preventative maintenance for roofs including yearly assessments, roof entry logs, and conducting checks for damage after major wind and weather events.
