    I have found that this shift seems to be positive.

    07:00 20 minute briefing
    07:20 Trucks Checked by Assignment
    08:00 Breakfast
    08:30 Physical Training
    09:15 Hydrant Maintenance
    10:15 15 Minute Break
    10:30 Hydrant Maintenance
    12:00 Lunch
    13:00 Pre-Incident Planning
    15:00 15 Minute Break
    15:15 Apparatus Maintenance (Wash, Wax, Etc.)
    16:30 Reports, Additional Projects, Etc.
    17:00 Public Relations (Ball Games, Programs, Nursing Homes, Etc.)
    19:00 Meal Time
    20:00 Decompression
    22:00 Lights Out
    06:00 Prepare to brief incomming shift

    Obviously call volume plays an important role in the schedule. Simply adjust accordingly.

      You can skip the two hours of decompression if you have someone fix the CO issues in the fire station.

        Work starts. Makeum sure the gear you need is there and squared away.

        Work Stops. Makeum sure it is right for the next shift.

        Anything else is a failure on your part.

            For my volunteer dept. rig checks are done every Wednesday. Works pretty well IMHO.

              At the dept. I recently retired from shift change is at 7:00 am and the driver checks the apparatus for things missing or broke. The Lt and FF check their airpacks and bunker gear.

              Once that is done the engine bays and living quarters are swept, mopped and clean, every shift, no exceptions.
