“We use every opportunity to make our city safer,” said General Manager Dale Vowell, referring to the $1,500 grant that the Russellville Electric Plant Board was recently awarded by the Kentucky League of Cities Insurance Services (KLCIS).

“This grant will be used to purchase additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for employees to help create a protective barrier between our employees and the hazards of our workplace, and in these uncertain times, grants such as this one are a practical way to make our budget go further, as well as provide tools that will enhance public safety” stated Vowell.  

KLCIS helps members increase public safety with a number of proactive programs and services.  Kentucky League of Cities Insurance Services has awarded in excess of $4 million since the Safety Grant Program started in 1999. 

The awarded funs will go toward Personal Protective Equipment, $300 reimbursement for attending the KLCIS Risk and Safety Conference, Ice and Snow traction devices for footwear, Safety Training and Utilities Safety Manuals. 

“Our philosophy is to prevent injuries and claims from happening,” says Jon Steiner, executive director/ CEO. “We want to partner with our members, and this safety grant promotes good risk management.  There is no better way to invest our member’s money.”
