Hearing Loss in Firefighters

If you are experiencing hearing loss due to noise exposure as a firefighter with AFD, contact the AFD Workers’ Comp (WC) office to discuss filing a Worker’s Compensation hearing loss claim.

In order to file a WC claim

  1. Contact Wellness (512-974-0200) to set an appointment for an updated hearing test.
  2. Contact the AFD WC office at 512-974-1310 or Fireworkcomp@austintexas.gov to discuss and to set a time to come into our office to file a FROI (First Report of Injury)

Once the hearing test is completed, the FROI has to be filed within 30 days
