Letter To The Editor, Butane Propane News
As I look back over the past 25 years insuring propane marketers, one thing stands out: CETP training has reduced propane claims dramatically. Where once I used to dread the phone call from a marketer reporting a nasty explosion or fire as a serious claim, I now ask “Was it your fault?” The answer for the past two years has been a resounding “No! The fire marshal doesn’t think we are involved.”
CETP training has made the difference, helping to instill and reinforce a company culture of safety which has reduced frequency and severity nationally. The positive result is keeping property and casualty premiums reasonable for the marketers-and their customers safe.
Now if we could just get a program to keep drivers from texting, we might even be able to reduce auto rates.
