The annual benefits enrollment deadline (midnight on October 31, 2023).

Your Local 1014 Executive Board would also like to encourage all members, if you are not already signed up for the Local 1014 Health Plan to look at our increased benefits for you and your family. The Local 1014 Health Plan is a plan for firefighters, by firefighters. It is a high-quality plan tailored to meet firefighters' and fire service personnel’s unique needs. 

We are a all-firefighter run health plan that is made for our LA County Fire Family. This year, the Local 1014 Health Trust has also increased benefits for vision, dental, physical therapy, and fertility in addition to our already extensive benefits. 
“One year ago, my wife, Whitney, had just delivered our two beautiful twins, Callahan and Marlowe, when we got the news that our daughter, Delaney, who was 5 at the time, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Not even 48 hours after delivering our twins, we had our daughter in Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego for what would become a week-long stay. 
It was a chaotic time for our family but we made it through with the help and support of The Local 1014 Health Plan. We never worried about whether or not we would be able to get treatment for our children. We knew we were in good hands. Now Delaney has one of the best continuous glucose monitors on the market and our first choice of insulin pump. She is healthy and happy and is getting the care she needs thanks to The Local 1014 Health Plan. We know that all five of our kids are covered no matter what because we have the best healthcare that is made for families like ours.”

-Brandon Hoyt, LA County Fire Engineer
