FAQ #6 What hours do WSFR personnel work?

WSFR has 3 shifts- “Battalions” (A, B, and C). Full time career Firefighter/EMTs are assigned to one of the three battalions which are scheduled 48 hours-on and 96 hours-off.  Part-time and volunteer members work from 12 to 48 hours depending upon the needs and their availability.  Although the hours are long,  this type of schedule is the most economical method of maintaining a constant level of service and requires fewer personnel than shorter shifts.
