    Default Northern Virginia FD Schedules?

    Can anyone help me out by telling me the work schedules for these NOVA departments?

    DCFD - 24/72
    Fairfax County
    Arlington
    Alexandria
    Loundon County
    Prince William County
    PGFD
    Montgomery County

    And please, keep the bickering to a minimum

    PGFD -- 24/72 and daywork
    MCFR -- 24/48

    And you might be bettered served describing these departments as Washington DC Metro Area, rather than NOVA. But I don't want to bicker too much.

    Arlington and Fairfax run the same schedule.

    Thumbs up Yep......

    MBarnes is Correct, and to add: PGFD's Daywork is 8 hour days, 5 Days per week (Mon/Fri) Approx. 15 Stations are Daywork, including mine, 5 are Totally Volunteer, 4 are Totally Career, and 20 have at least 2 Shift people.......

    Side Note: Mentioning PGFD and NOVA in the same sentence is like waving a Red Flag at a Bull. The reasons are Complex and Political, but the fact that PG was pushed into using the NOVA numbering system is a major factor..... There are those, including me, who are Lobbying hard to reverse that. A good portion of NOVA's agenda is very anti Volunteer, or so it seems to us on our side of the River.........

    Agree Harve. It is so silly. I guess it's hard to Fairfax Engine 24: DC Engine 10: Chevy Chase Engine 2, etc.
