Informal Data collection. How many hours per year does your volunteer fire dept. require? If you can estimate the number of hours including minimum call attendance, training, meetings/activities per year or month or week (whatever is easiest to calculate). I know the amount of hours YOU ACTUALLY SPEND at the fire house might be a bit more than what is required but I'm interested in what is required to keep you in good standing as an active firefighter. No social members please. If you could indicate number of calls per year (fire & EMS) and what level EMS provider and/or Line Officer you are (EMT, Paramedic, CFR, Capt., 1st Lieutenant, Chief etc.) and the level of EMS response your department provides.
