    Question Fire Station Occupancy Level

    We are writing an AFG for an exhaust sytem for our station and NFPA 1001 training materials. I am wondering how you determine the occupancy level for our station. We share a building with our county barn. They are in their half daily Monday - Friday. We are an all-volunteer dept. and no one is manning the station all the time. Someone is in-and-out of our station almost daily 7 days a week. I think that this would be considered part-time but I am not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If no one is living there 24 hours a day, it's part time. In your narrative, explain who is there when. That's what we did.

    Get a building inspector, fire marshall or engineer to set down with you. They should be able to give you an occupancy load in just a few minutes.
