Property Conservation: Protecting Public Assets
Property conservation is the organized and managed effort directed toward loss prevention and pre-planned emergency action. The purpose is to preserve the public assets of towns, cities and counties. A property conservation program is a planned, positive approach toward the elimination of conditions that can cause a crippling financial loss to a town, city or county. Property conservation can be a vital force in guarding against the danger of unforeseen loss. This webinar is designed to help the public entity put a property conservation program into place and identify some of the more common property exposures (i.e. hazards) for a public entity.
