    Sparks approves new firefighter work schedules
    nvrensc1
    SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Sparks city firefighters will get more days
    off in a row under a new scheduling format.
    The City Council on Monday agreed to a one-year trial period
    beginning in July for the proposal advocated by the city fire
    department.
    Backers say the move will reduce overtime and sick leave costs
    and boost morale.
    Under existing schedules, firefighters work 24 hours and are off
    for 24 hours. That pattern is repeated three times, when they then
    get three days off in a row.
    The proposal will allow them to work two, 24-hour shifts and get
    the following four days off.
    Fire Chief Lee Leighton said firefighters will still work the
    same number of hours. He also assured council members there will be
    no disruption in service.
    "It's absolutely all internal," Leighton said of the changes.
    "You won't be able to recognize any difference whatsoever."
    Leighton said the idea came as part of City Manager Shaun
    Carey's Centennial Initiative to redesign city government. He said
    three-fourths of firefighters polled preferred the new schedule.

    Sparks to staff new fire station with existing personnel
    SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - The Sparks City Council has decided to
    juggle existing firefighters to staff a new fire station in Spanish
    Springs.
    The council will decide in the next few months where to cut city
    services to come up with the estimated $600,000 that will be needed
    in overtime pay to staff the new station for one year, council
    members decided after a day-long retreat Wednesday.
    Under a plan developed by Fire Chief Lee Leighton, the city will
    use existing staff and pay overtime to fill needed positions and
    fire engine crews will be reduced to three instead of four.
    City officials said more firefighters will be hired and engine
    staffing levels reinstated as revenues allow.
    Sparks voters in June rejected a property tax increase to hire
    more firefighters to staff the new fire station in Wingfield
    Springs, expected to open in October 2004.
    Running fire trucks with only three staff has been criticized by
    the firefighters union in the past. Federal safety standards
    recommend four firefighters per engine.
