It shall be the duty of the appeals board to determine in the case of members of a University of California fire department specified in Section 4804.1, upon request of the Regents of the University of California, whether or not the disability referred to in Section 4804.1 arose out of and in the course of duty. The appeals board shall, also in any disputed case, determine when such disability ceases.
