My dept. has been talking about this for some time but I've had some reservations. Maybe you guys could answer a few questions for me?

--What is you work schedule like on day 1 vs day 2?

We regularly are getting our A**'s kicked @ night with 6 or 7 calls past midnight. Do you have a different schedule for the second day if you've been up all night?

-- How many of you that have gone to 48/96's are medical transporting agencies? Does that become a factor?

We currently staff 2 Medics and an Engine and transport times came be up to an hour. Do you rotate assignments if your a transporting agency? I think I might want to chew on the end of a 12 GA after 48 hours on a medic...

I looked @ the website quoted in the other thread, and got some good ideas, but I'm just looking for some general impressions on what the average transporting house thinks about the schedule.

Thanks
