    Some will work 24 on 48 off.. some will work 12 hr shifts - days on and off vary, some will work 10 hours days or 14 hours with days on and off varing..

    It totally depends on location and what type of department it is.. Whether it is totally paid department, combo department (a few paid but mostly volunteers) or totally volunteer department.
