    Syracuse NY does it. They work 2 10 hour days, followed by 2 14 hour nights followed by 4 days off. I'm sure the local departments in upstate NY do the same.
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    Philadelphia uses this as well.

    Default 4-4

    Just about every department in the state of Rhode Island uses the 4 and 4.
