CITY OF SEMMES RECEIVES ALM
GOLD RISK MANAGEMENT AWARD

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Judith Hale, Mayor, mayor@cityofsemmes.org or 251.649.8811

May 4th, 2015

Semmes, AL – The City of Semmes was recently awarded a Gold Risk Management Award by the insurance divisions of the Alabama League of Municipalities.

Approximately 780 public entities participate in one or both of the Alabama League of Municipalities (ALM) sponsored insurance programs which are the Municipal Workers Compensation Fund (MWCF) and the Alabama Municipal Insurance Corporation (AMIC).  The Board of Directors of both insurance programs approved the establishment of a Risk Management Award system in 2002.  The award system recognizes those member who have instituted risk management and loss control activities in an effort to reduce their loss ratio.  Risk management and loss control activities not only benefit the member’s loss ratio but also the overall success of the League sponsored insurance programs.  Through the efforts of the City of Semmes, employee, property and liability losses are being minimized; and – most importantly – employees and citizens are reaping the reward of a safer workplace and community.

Recipients of the President’s Risk Management Award, which included the top 5% of those members with minimal losses for a five year period, received a specially designed memento.  Three additional levels of achievement – Gold, Silver and Bronze – were also recognized.  Recipients in these categories receive a plaque for the first year they are acknowledged and then a plate to be attached to the plaque for subsequent years.  The Gold, Silver and Bronze levels were for loss ratios of below 5%; 5% to 20%; and 20% to 40%, respectively. 

The Alabama League of Municipalities was organized in 1935 and has served since that time as the recognized voice of the cities and towns in Alabama.  Through the years, the organization has steadily grown and now serves 452 municipalities.  This voluntary membership brings officials of cities and towns together in fellowship of public service – which strengthens and guides local government in a progressive, responsible fashion.  The primary purchase of the Alabama League of Municipalities is to promote understanding of municipal government and administration in Alabama and thereby advance the welfare of the people of this state.

For more information about this event, please contact City Hall at 251.649.8811.

Unique Partnership Between the City of Semmes and
Mobile County Commission To Benefit Public Safety

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Brandi Michelsen, Project Coordinator, brandimichelsen@cityofsemmes.org or 251.649.8811

January 20, 2014

Semmes, AL – On Friday, January 23, 2015, at 9:30 a.m., the City of Semmes and Mobile County Commission will hold a ribbon cutting and dedication for the opening of the new City of Semmes Public Safety Training Complex.  This project highlights the partnership between Mobile County Commission and the City of Semmes to offer more training and classroom opportunities for volunteer fire departments, EMS, and other public safety personnel throughout Mobile County.

Mobile County collaborated with the City of Semmes to construct their Live Fire Training Tower (Probie) adjacent to the City's planned multi-use classroom facility.   This classroom facility will provide amble meeting space to offer Alabama Fire College certification classes and other training.  The Public Safety Training Complex will give our Mobile County volunteer firefighters more opportunities for training, both classroom and live fire, without having to travel outside of the County.

Public Safety is a number one priority for both Mobile County and the City of Semmes.  We understand the importance of fire safety for all of the Mobile County cities and communities and believe the Public Safety Training Complex will provide opportunities that may not have been as readily available as before.

The ceremony will take place at the new Public Safety Training Complex, located at 9010 Forest Street, Semmes, AL 36575. Commissioner Connie Hudson will attend as the keynote speaker, Chief Tim Blakemore (Alabama Fire College) will be our guest speaker, followed by Mayor Judith Hale, and Semmes Volunteer Fire Department Chief John Edmond. The ribbon cutting ceremony will be followed by tours of each facility and vendors of emergency and fire equipment will be onsite for all department representatives.
