As with our other Risk Management offerings, we partner with 3rd party providers to offer you additional services that you may not have access to on your own. For additional information about any of our partner programs detailed below, please contact Ian Chadwick or call (916) 850-7300.
The EIA has partnered with Plexus Global to provide background check services.
Employers have a duty to ensure prospective employees will not pose a risk to the public, other agency employees, or the agency. Comprehensive background checks are a necessary and important pre-employment best practice that will help members meet this obligation.
Using a consumer reporting agency, like Plexus Global, to conduct background checks ensures compliance with requirements for safeguarding the confidentiality of information obtained. Limiting employees’ involvement reduces the member’s exposure and maintains the confidentiality of the information obtained in the background check process.
For additional information on preferred pricing and value-added packages available to EIA members, contact Ian Chadwick in our Loss Prevention department.
Mainstream Unlimited services include both pre- and post-crisis incident services. Pre-crisis services include regional training programs, emergency plans (review and development), vulnerability assessments, and webinars on topics such as critical incident management, communications, and media management.

Members may access their available subsidy balances to assist in covering those costs.
Post-crisis incident services include situation assessment, media consulting, public announcements, deployment of outside resources to member site. These services will be provided to members upon approval by the EIA, and paid for by the EIA up to $50,000 per incident. Any costs above that would be paid for by the member.
