St. Tammany Fire District #1 receives Safety Award for Second Year in Row

At our April Board of Commissioners meeting, St. Tammany Fire District #1 was recognized by the Louisiana Workers Compensation Corporation (LWCC) for being one of the top 70 safest companies out of over 16,000 in the State of Louisiana.  St. Tammany Fire District #1 has now been recognized for this award five times (2007, 2008, 2009, 2014, and 2015) in the last eight years.

Fire Chief Chris Kaufmann said “this award is a direct reflection of the hard working men and women of the department who serve the community”.  As an Internationally Accredited Agency, we are pleased that LWCC recognizes our proactive approach of providing baseline testing, training, and post injury management for our employees.  The organization’s commitment to make safety a top priority has had a direct impact to our budget through costs savings, by reducing long-term sick leave and insurance premiums.
