    Question What does your dept do?

    Hello, I'm new to this board but am looking for some help.
    How does your dept. handle EMS station, shift and partner
    assignments? Are you allowed to shift/station bid? Do you
    keep the same partner? Do you have to switch partners regularly?
    If so how does it work? I am currently on a dept that does not utilize a bid system and am trying to compile some data. Any info would be greatly appreciated...thanks for the help!

    As the company officer, I assign my ladder and medic crews as I see fit, rotating crews through when necessary. We don't have a bid system, if a vacancy comes open, it is advertised, then force filled or replaced with a new recruit if no volunteers.

    We go by seniority. Pick your job (whatever you qualifiy for), from the Tower/ladder to the engine or medic and the least senior person is usually stuck being 911 dispatcher. So your usually with the same person/people unless somebody is off.
