In our FD, our suppression crews work a 24 hour shift. There is now talk about our dispatchers wanting to work a 24 hour shift. We are a small dispatch centre, dispatching about 15000 calls per year. We only have 2 dispatchers on duty at all times.
I'm looking for feedback (pros and cons) for dispatchers working a 24 hour shift. Comments from dispatchers/fire fighters who have personal experience would be great and of course, I'd like to hear from everyone else too.
