Misc.: 48-96 Schedule Proposal

48-96 Work Schedule Proposal


An ad hoc committee comprised of members of Local 1014 has researched the benefits and feasibility of a 48-96 work schedule.


Under a 48-96 work schedule, each platoon works two consecutive shifts for a total of 48 hours, then has 96 hours off before repeating this pattern of two days on, four days off.


Sixty-three local departments have already switched to this more efficient schedule as a means of easing long and frequent commutes, providing additional ?four-dayers? and weekends off, and increasing overall family time.


.... Read More .....

Benefits of the 48-96 work schedule:

????????? Cuts all commuting in half

????????? Twice as many four-dayers

????????? More time at home with family

????????? More mornings home

????????? More full weekends off

????????? Actually reduces long-term fatigue

????????? Cuts fuel costs in half

????????? Significant, positive environmental impact

The 48-96 schedule is uniquely and ideally suited for those firefighters who have families, work overtime, attend classes, drive significant commutes, or would just like 5 four-dayers each month. Please read the attached proposal for a complete explanation of the schedule and discussion of its many benefits.


By signing the attached petition, you are signaling to the Board of 1014 that you would like to see a trial period of the 48-96 schedule. Anyone who would like to help collect signatures, please contact one of the listed committee members.


For more information, please contact Capt Greg Cleveland, FS 121, (909)396-0164; FFS Art Cocks, FS 144 (818)889-1626.
