    Default CFD Schedule

    We work 3 shifts 24 on/ 48 off. Work 4 shifts get 1 shift off( Daley day aka Kelly day) Each Firefighter is given 3 17 day Furlough's (vacation) from day 1. Get 1 extra shift off after 25 years of service. NO SICK DAYS NO PERSONAL DAYS

    I attached a calendar if it helps explain it better

    They will give you 1 shift off per month from time you are hired. So guys in academy now will be given 9 days off for 2009.

    JohnnyMo,

    I think I get it, seems pretty straight forward. However, I didn't see your attachment, or either, I don't know how to open your attachment.

    Thanks,
    RyBaK

    Default CFD Calendar

    The file was too large for the forums. If you go to
    http://www.iaff-local2.org

    On the left select Items of Interest
    Scroll 3/4 down and you will see 2008 Calendar
    Hope that helps

    Thanks for the link. I'd say I'm a fairly bright person, but I need a hint on how to understand what I'm reading on the calendar. Should I be looking at 1B, EMS-2, or 3E, or all of it?

    Thanks again for the post and the link. Lots of good info.

    When we get on we will be either 1, 2 or 3 with a letter of A through E. If your a 1-A, you work every day that has a 1 B through E except 1-A. If your a 2D you work all 2's except 2D and so on for all the others numbers and letters.

    Default Tuition Reimbursement

    I know that tuition reimbursement is a benefit offered by CFD. Does anyone know if there are restrictions, i.e. undergrad only, only degrees related to fire safety, caps on amount of tuition?

    Thanks,

    RyBaK

    I agree with the advice. However, I'm on lists for a few other jobs that might be offered at or around the same time as CFD. Just weighing options.

    Good Luck,

    As of this time, no restrictions. Only limits are massage school and culinary are not covered. They will cover undergrad and grad as well. Limit of two classes per term though. Only CFD, CPD, and nurses union are unlimited. All other city departments are limited to 3K per year.

    Always hearing that they are going to try to pull this, which makes sense during a time of financial hardship.

    Thanks for the post ChiTown, very much appreciated. There goes my dreams of opening my Meatball Massage parlor. Wait, that doesn't sound as good when I type it. Maybe my Oiled Loins stand. No, that's not much better either

    How's the academy going? And seriously, thanks for the info.
    Take Care,
    RyBaK
