On Friday, July 12, 2019, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby, along with members of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 1014 and various County officials, met with representatives from the Department’s new third party workers’ compensation administrator, Sedgwick. The meet-and-greet took place at the LACoFD East County Training Center at Fire Station 187 in Pomona.
LACoFD firefighters provided live demonstrations to Sedgwick staff on the types of incidents they are exposed to and engaged in every day on the job. The demonstrations expose staff members on how physically demanding the job is.
The Department looks forward to working with Sedgwick to ensure all of its team members receive much-needed treatment rapidly and efficiently.
