    gamewell37,
    Are you a member of the VA fire dept? If so, how much coverage area do you have and how many on a shift? At the VA what is the number of beds at your facility? Sorry about all the questions but seeing how it compares to the VA I am currently at. Due you do mutual aid off station also?
