"PEP is the best Pool for local government in the State of Ohio and the reason is that we operate as a team. It starts with the Board of Directors, truly dedicated to provide the best product possible. It extends to the Administrator with a professional staff second to none and includes all the service providers such as the marketers, loss control providers and loss adjusters all working together to serve our loyal Members."

- Wayne Barfels, PEP Board Member, Chairman

There are a lot of other insurance programs out there, but not many offer access to lawyers who specialize in representing medical malpractice and environmental lawsuits. PEP is one of the few programs that offer attorneys with specialized experience."

- Tim Hollinger, Health Commissioner Huron County Public Health Department

"The PEP Advantage. . . One advantage of PEP is that its coverage is targeted for Public Entities. Yes, underwriters are used to develop the coverage. Then, the entire program is approved by the seven Board Members. Each of the seven is either a current or former practitioner (e.g. city or county manager, finance director, parks administrator, law director, association director, etc.). Thus, the coverage is targeted for you - the public official."

- James Caplinger, PEP Board Member, Secretary

PEP looked like a good program, considering the number of other fairs that participate in the program. We received better coverage from PEP than with our prior carrier. I encourage other fairs to give PEP serious consideration. Make sure to take the time to compare it to other carriers."

- Allan Hess, Executive Director Clark County Fair

"AOHC and our members greatly value the long-term relationship with PEP. Most of our members are also members of PEP because PEP offers the best coverage at the best price for the work of local health departments. The relationship has grown as PEP has grown, and we look forward to continuing to strengthen the program through active local health district involvement."

- Beth Bickford, PEP Board Member and Executive Director for the Association of Ohio Health Commissioners

"(With regard to the Resource eLibrary) Meigs County Health Department has found the Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) for healthcare and industrial environments content the most helpful. Additionally, we use the office safety and electrical safety resources. The resources are used at our annual safety trainings. The Online Resource Library helps manage our workers' compensation costs. The videos are well made, easy to access, always available and very entertaining. The videos save research time and purchasing monies."

- Mr. Frank Gorscak, Emergency Response CoordinatorMeigs County Health Department
