I am in the promotional process for Battalion Chief and I am in need of collecting information. What I am looking for is the name of any FD (and contact person if possible) that does a shift change one hour or so earlier for Battalion Chiefs than the rest of the OPS folks.
The main reason for doing this would be to get the momentum of the dept. rolling in the right direction before "the shift starts".
I know most places that have a 0800 shift change time actually have guys show up at 0700 (or earlier/later) - That is NOT part of the project I am working on..... but agree with 100% ;-)
Thank you so very much for any info you can provide me - more than willing to share the info after I am done with anyone who wants the info collected.
When I contact the FD that does what I describe above, I have plenty of other questions :-)
Stay safe, stay low, go home together!
