Prompted by the Fire Station 81 shooting that left one victim dead and another injured earlier this month, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors scheduled a motion Tuesday to address workplace trauma within the L.A. County Fire Department (LACFoD). Addressing the tragic Fire Station 81 workplace shooting just north of Santa Clarita, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to address the possible surge of mental health issues across Santa Clarita fire stations due to the incident on June 1. In a press conference on the day of the shooting, Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby acknowledged the “several suicides and unfortunately even a murder suicide” that have taken place by the hands of L.A. County firefighters during Osby’s 37-years at the Department.
