City awarded loss prevention grants

Chelmsford recently received about $5,000 in loss prevention grants from the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Agency, Chelmsford’s insurance provider. The grants will fund a roof inspection program as well as environmental compliance training. The $2,500 grant for the roof inspection planning will help to prevent leaks in town buildings that can cause costly interior damage, mold, and air quality problems. The $2,600 grant for environmental compliance training will provide Department of Public Works employees the training they need to help ensure the town meets important environmental regulatory requirements. “The roof inspection grant helps protect the town’s investment in its municipal buildings, while preventing any adverse health effects from arising,” Town Manager Paul E. Cohen said. “The environmental compliance training will assist in the DPW’s efforts to protect water quality, wetlands, and workplace safety.” The Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Agency is the nonprofit insurance arm of the Massachusetts Municipal Association. It insures nearly 400 cities, towns, and other public entities in Massachusetts.
