City’s insurance pool gives $1,000 grant toward safety equipment


ICAP logoPerry City Hall announced Tuesday it has been awarded a $1,000 grant from the Iowa Communities Assurance Pool (ICAP), the city’s property and casualty coverage provider.

ICAP established the grants as a special initiative in celebration of the pool’s 30th anniversary.

Perry’s ICAP grant is earmarked for the purchase of loss control and risk management items. Qualified equipment includes but is not limited to:

  • Approved playground surface materials
  • Exit signage
  • Automated External Defibrillators
  • Fire extinguishers

The city of Perry applied for the grant in March 2016 and will use the funds to purchase new high-visibility safety vests for all employees who will work around moving vehicles or equipment. High-visibility garments help alert drivers to the presence of the nearby workers.

ICAP was formed in 1986 as a group self-insurance program for public entities in Iowa. The member-owned pool provides property and casualty coverage, risk-sharing facilities and risk-management services to its members.

“The pool is acclaimed for its stable rates, superior coverages and class of service that is second to none,” said Perry Finance Officer Susie Moorhead.
