Workers’ Compensation assists personnel when they have been injured on the job. Staff ensure that paperwork is filed correctly, follow-up treatment for injuries is received, and that employees get the proper care for those injuries. Working in conjunction with the Safety Office and the Wellness Center, the Workers’ Compensation section helps ensure that personnel receive appropriate medical intervention, resulting in a return to full-duty status as quickly as possible.
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 notify your Supervisor to complete the First Report of Injury (FROI).
- Once you have submitted your FROI, you will receive an email from the AFD Work Comp team which will include information and instruction in the body of the email, including your adjusters name and claim number. Attached to the email will be the IOJ Employee Resource Packet, blank copies of Work Status forms as well as a copy of your DWC-1. You can also download the IOJ Employee Resource Packet
