Shift Schedule

A Shift- Green B Shift- Red | C Shift- Grey
While in recruit academy you will work Monday-Friday daylight and have evenings off to recover and study.  Once assigned to a shift you will work approximately nine 24 hour shifts a month (see calendar). Shifts start at 7:50am, but providers come in to work around 7:00am. This schedule is designed to allow personnel to rest and recuperate between shifts, however, it often allows firefighters to spend more time with family, take on part-time jobs, attend college or enjoy their recreational hobbies.
