          They said about 25 at the open house. Same number they said last year, but they obviously just graduated their biggest academy in history.

                  I was in B band last year as well. What was your overall band score last year?

                    I believe I was in the low 80s. I did way better on NTN this go around.

                        Does that 56 hour average work week come with 16 hours of built in overtime?

                          I believe the OT is built in. Here is the website that has salary and benefit information.

                            CSFD's OT is based on 136 hours in an 18 day work period, so they only get 8 hours of OT every 18-day cycle. That monthly rate NCH713 linked to includes that mandatory scheduled OT already.

                              Our firefighters get time and a half for everything over 40 hours in a work week.

                              The only mandatory OT comes when minimum staffing requirement has to be met and there are not enough volunteering to work it.
