    Default 24/72 or 24/24/24/120 schedule

    Hey, I was just wondering which departments out there run 24/72 shifts or 24 on 24 off 24 on 120 off shifts. We run 24/72's and I was just curious how many others there are. Anyone in the Pacific Northwest?

    Prince William Runs a 24 (6A-6A) on 48 off with every 8th being a kelly. Great shift in my mind, every three weeks you get 5 days straight off. They also have a day work shift 6A-6P) that is Monday - Friday with a rotating day off. Every 5 weeks you get 4 days straight.

    most of the DC/Norther VA/MD departments run either 24/72, the NVA schedule, or 24 48 with the kelly.

    Thanks! That's interesting to see. So nobody out in Oregon or Washington state running 42 hour work weeks, huh?

    Everett works a 24-48-24-96 that works out to a 42 hour week.

    Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Sno1, and Sno7 all work various 4 platoon schedules, but the work week is in the 46 hour range due to debit days.

    Thanks guys, appreciate it. That St. Paul one is different. Haven't seen that before. What about Michigan? What kind of schedules do you guys run?

    Just wondering, Fairfax County pays the highest annual salary. A basic FF gets around 48k/yr, on an average 56 hour workweek. Medics start at an 18/3, which is 53,887, plus 10% of a basic FF's salary, along with riding pay of $2/hr on the engine, and $3/hr on the medic. All in all, a FF/medic straight out of the academy makes around 65k/yr on average after including all incentives.

    My question is, on an hourly basis, how are the FF's compensated in DC, Loudon, PWC, Stafford and such? For shift work, an 18/3 is 19.43/hr (before incentives). I'm not positive on an 18/1, but if the salary is 48k, then the hourly would be around 16.50.

    Currently PWC firefighter's start out just under 45k a year while working a 48hr average work week. Ends up being about $18/hr before incentives (24hr units receive holiday pay, daywork guys do not due to not working the shift)
