In some departments, there are different organizational structures. A small company can have a lot of officers, and there's the large departments that have what seems to be an insufficient amount of officers due to the call volume and other stuff. How many officers does your firehouse / EMS company have (like chief-grade officers, lieutenants, safety officers, etc.)?

With a roster of 60 (part time and volunteer) we have 1 chief, 3 bat. chiefs, 3 captains, and 6 lieut. 1 Bat Chief and 1 liet are out for god knows how long, 1 Bat Chief rarely shows up, 1 liet is Part Time so is only around while on duty, and one capt. is out of town for work a lot so we get at best 1 chief, 1 batt chief, 1 or 2 captains, and a lieut or two on a good working incident.
