    Default Work Schedule

    My Department has been told that our four Assistant Chiefs should work 8hr days, with one of them always on call. Can anyone help me with a work schedule. These are paid positions so they will need to be compensated

    Four chiefs to cover cover 24/7/365? try 24 hour shifts with 72 hours off. Or FDNY's schedual. You will need some help with NY because I don't really know all of the details. They work 9 to 1800 two days in a row then have some time off and work 1800 to 0900 two nights in a row a little more time off then back to days.

    8 hour days would leave gaps in coverage and force OT or comp time when they respond to night alarms. It would also give you 4 chiefs on at some times, which is quite an overkill.

    Hey,
    Came up with a plan for your chief schedule, which is a little odd but bear with me! 2 chiefs paid during the day everyday, 0800-1600. 1 chief on call at Ĺ pay for any problems overnight from 1600-0800. The next day, chiefs rotate as listed below. With this cycle, each chief has an annual average of 42 paid hours/week between station time & on call. Letís take the month of July, for example:

    July
    1. C1 C2 day, C1 night
    2. C2 C3 day, C2 night
    3. C3 C4 day, C3 night
    4. C4 C1 day, C4 night
    5. C1 C2 day, C1 night
    6. C2 C3 day, C2 night
    7. C3 C4 day, C3 night
    8. C4 C1 day, C4 night
    9. C1 C2 day, C1 night
    10. C2 C3 day, C2 night
    11. C3 C4 day, C3 night
    12. C4 C1 day, C4 night
    13. C1 C2 day, C1 night
    14. C2 C3 day, C2 night
    15. C3 C4 day, C3 night
    16. C4 C1 day, C4 night
    17. C1 C2 day, C1 night
    18. C2 C3 day, C2 night
    19. C3 C4 day, C3 night
    20. C4 C1 day, C4 night
    21. C1 C2 day, C1 night
    22. C2 C3 day, C2 night
    23. C3 C4 day, C3 night
    24. C4 C1 day, C4 night
    25. C1 C2 day, C1 night
    26. C2 C3 day, C2 night
    27. C3 C4 day, C3 night
    28. C4 C1 day, C4 night
    29. C1 C2 day, C1 night
    30. C2 C3 day, C2 night
    31. C3 C4 day, C3 night

    Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong
