    Post Staffing

    Hello I am doing a staffing study for my dept. and would like to know where others are compared to us.

    My dept has a minimum staffing level of 17 people, Staffing 3 engines and 3 rescues and a battalion chief. Last year we ran over 11000 calls a majority of which were rescue.
    We are doing a study in hopes of getting some extra personnel for a badly needed 4th rescue. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
