Workers' Compensation

The Workers’ Compensation team provides information and assitance to employees injured in the course of employment. We provide the tools needed to navigate and manage the complex workers' compensation system.

Our Team includes a registered nurse and two very knowledgeable administrators. Customer service is our priority - we are now available seven days a week to accommodate your firefighter schedule.  Please contact the Workers’ Compensation team if you have any questions about an injury on the job.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
