The Oak Brook Park District recently received a $1,500 cash award from the Park District Risk Management Agency (PDRMA) for maintaining its current Level A accreditation status for 2013. The Level A accreditation status is the highest award that can be earned through comprehensive safety and loss control review process, and is given to park districts that receive a score of 95% or higher during the tri-annual review process. The Oak Brook Park District has maintained its accreditation status for seven years.
The loss control tri-annual review process is a yearlong inspection of every aspect of park district operations to ensure that the agency has established and implemented a comprehensive safety and loss prevention program. The Oak Brook Park District has exceeded the expectations set by PDRMA since 2006 and plans to use the $1,500 award to further strengthen its loss control program. "The safety of our participants, parks and facilities is the number one priority at the Oak Brook Park District and it is integral in our mission to provide the very best recreational opportunities to our community. We are thrilled that our dedicated staff has worked to achieve the highest level of accreditation for risk management," says Laure Kosey, executive director for the Oak Brook Park District.
