Risk Management



Risk Management is the process of planning, organizing, leading and controlling activities in order to minimize the adverse effects of accidental loss at a reasonable cost.

The Risk Management Team is committed to managing risk at FCS by reviewing District information, performing inspections, making recommendations, and resolving and paying claims in a timely manner to minimize the costs of claims and other exposures to the District. The Team works closely with staff and outside agencies (i.e. Broker, Third Party Administrators) on various insurance and claim matters and with the District's' Attorney on all claim settlements and litigated matters.
