  • Which shift is better?

    We are conducting a survey of full time departments.

    What department do you work for?
    How many FF's in your Department?
    Which shift deployment do you have:10/14 or 24's?
    How many people in your group/shift?
    Do you like your 10/14 or 24's?

    We are trying to figure out which shift deployment to put into effect in our town, so any other information you can provide would be helpful.
    Thanks.

      We have about 96 line/FFR's,6 stations,25 on the line/shift,3 shifts.We work a 24/56 hour week(24on/48off).The 24 hour shift is the only way to go,our union would vote down 10/14,and probably lynch a guy for even talking a 10/14!!!!!!!Now a 24/72,we would give a few years pay raises for that.Our city would like us to go back to a 72 hr.week if they could.

        My Dept has 69 in fire suppression, 3 platoons of 23, 20 man min. We work a 56 hr week, on,off,on,off,on,4 off. 5 years ago we switched from 2 platoon on,off,on,3 off, and most of the guys would give their right arm to go back to it.

          144 guys total. Work 10/14's in a 42 hr week. Roughly 33 guys per shift. 4 shifts.
          I like the schedule, but have never worked 24's.

              City of Bayonne (NJ) Fire Department

              How many FF's in your Department?
              195

              Which shift deployment do you have:10/14 or 24's?
              24/72's- 42 hour workweek

              How many people in your group/shift?
              46 maximum...33 minimum. 4 group system

              Do you like your 10/14 or 24's?
              24's is better. Allows for more quality time at home or for your 2nd job.

              Also Gunnyv, correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn't going back to a 2 group system mean going back to a 72 hour workweek?? Why would guys give their right arm to work more hours?
