    Default SAFER responsibilities....

    Greetings all.

    JLU here, new to the board...but, I look forward to posting with ya'all.

    Quick question:

    I once heard that the department had an obligation to give their SAFER firefighters annual COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) raises.

    Is this the case? If so can you point me in the direction on where to obtain this information.

    Thanks in advance!

    It's not a requirement but if there is a COLA then SAFER will pay for it. So if the department by contract is required to fund one there was a spot in the SAFER app for adding an annual increase, whether because of COLA or just merit raises.
