Division of Workers' Compensation San Diego Office Closed Due to Wildfires
Due to problems resulting from local fires The Division of Workers' Compensation closed its San Diego office yesterday and said it will remain closed today.
All workers compensation cases set to be heard before the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board today will be rescheduled. Injured workers, their representatives, and others with business at the San Diego district office may call the division's Information Service Center at 619-767-2083 or 1-800-736-7401 for updates on the office closure.
A WCAB bulletin says the closure resulted from unhealthy air conditions in the area and a request by local authorities to keep all non-emergency personnel off the roads to ease the traffic burden on emergency teams fighting fires and handling other crises.
