MONTGOMERY – Several of Alabama’s counties have been recognized by the Association of County Commissions of Alabama’s Self-Insured Liability Insurance Fund Inc. for outstanding safety and loss control efforts during the past year.
· Category 1 (annual contribution less than $100,000):
o First Place – Coosa County Commission
o Second Place – Geneva County Commission
o Third Place – Bullock County Commission
· Category 2 (annual contribution $100,000-200,000):

o Third Place – Colbert County Commission
· Category 3 (annual contribution $200,000 or more):
o First Place – DeKalb County Commission

These county commissions have posted the lowest three-year loss ratio for their respective categories. In each category, first-place counties received $1,500 and a plaque, with second- and third-place counties both receiving $1,000. The money was awarded from the insurance fund’s investment income.
“These awards are a strong reminder to Alabama’s county officials and to our citizens that safety in county buildings and by county employees benefits everyone,” said ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield. “We are extremely proud of these counties for making safety a high priority.”
These honored counties are among the 55 counties that are members of a self-funded liability insurance fund sponsored by the Association.
