Covering California’s Fire Service Community

Wellness Stipend Program (Available to Fire Districts with Medical)

Each Fire District participating in the FRMS medical program will be allotted a wellness stipend based upon the number of fire personnel enrolled in the FRMS medical program as of January 1st of each calendar year.

The district wellness stipend must be used towards the Fire District’s wellness activities, equipment, and/or supplies that directly benefit the wellness of firefighters and emergency personnel during the plan year (there is no carry over of monies to the following year).

Once the Fire District decides on the wellness activities, events, programs, or equipment/supplies, a detailed explanation along with a Fire District generated invoice (see the Fire District Wellness Stipend Program Invoice Form) are to be completed. The explanation documentation along with the completed invoice should be submitted via email to Dawn Almanzor, . Reimbursements will be made directly to the Fire District.
