| A unique feature of the CISA Program is the Loss Prevention & Risk Management benefits|
Protecting your Association and its financial assets requires a comprehensive risk management program.
Through regular inspections of the property provided by an independent third party; subsequent loss prevention recommendations are generated to help the Association maintain its property, keep its residents and guests safe while saving the Association money over the long term.
Proper maintenance eliminates costly repairs
• Project future risks through loss control recommendations
• Avoid special assessments through Reserve Studies as recommended by loss control
• Minimize downtime in the event of a disaster
• Control premiums by controlling claims
It is worth noting that all property insurance policies exclude coverage for wear & tear. Therefore, it’s in the Associations best interest to maintain the property rather than pay for costly repairs and replacements.
• Each year, nearly 3,000 people die in U.S. home fires
