Does anyone currently work or know of any departments which change shifts in the evening instead of the morning for a 24 hour shift? After discussing this in the firehouse we came up with quite a few advantages and figured somebody out there has to be doing it. We would love to hear any feedback.
Thanks and stay safe..

It might be a swift kick in the gonads for your part-time work through.The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. --Norman Mattoon Thomas, 6 time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America

We work 24-48 with shift change at 1900 hours. Most of us relieve at 1800 hours, some at 1830 and some at 1900, it all depends upon what you choose to work out with your counterparts on the other shifts.
The schedule has some advantages, but it also has its disadvantages. I hate having to cut short activities and losing the evening of my "short day" because I have to go on duty. It's almost like having only a day and a half off between shifts.
This is the schedule my dept has had for many, many years. It's all I've ever worked since I started back in 1990.Fire Lieutenant/E.M.T.
