Just heard last night that the FD I volunteer for is moving to this schedule for their payed staff starting end of December. Personally, I won't have to do it since I'm still only volunteer with the FD, but my experience in doing long shifts on the ambulance (just finished a 62.5 hour shift on Monday morning and doing it again this weekend!), I think people will probably get used to it. The one REALLY nice part is that it cuts down on travel time/mileage and with gas prices the way they currently are...
Blood and Guts, nuts and blots, yea it's all good!
