    Default Shift duties for Fire Inspectors

    I was just wondering what some of the duties performed on the 24 hour sleepover are for other federal fire inspectors on the 56-60 hour schedule. There does not seem to be a particular standard for this nationwide. Some departments have them serve as Incident Safety Officer or investigator, others serve as firefighter or fill in as crew chief. I was wondering what was the most common nationwide?

    There seems to be a push to 'justify' the 56/60 hr workweek currently worked by our Inspectors & Chief Officer men-in-white. We've noticed an increased 'presence' by their assignment to things like "Accountability" and "Safety" for their after-duty hours jobs. Perhaps this is to keep them up to date on skills, perhaps a better utilitization of available manpower, perhaps a reaction to rumored absorbsion/dissolution/contracting out of those services. Who knows, yet. We've even seen the Deputy and A/C Training slide into the Chief 2 position after business hours and cause the guy sitting at Chief 2 to go drop into the manning levels as a Crew Chief or something. Interesting.
    It wouldn't hurt for there to be some form of standardized after-hours operation format. Anybody else have/use any good ideas?
