The district I work for is combination with part time for fill in. The question of the day round here is Should you respect the rank (Capt. LT.) of a volunteer when they work in a different capacity such as part time, if the full time Capt is off. We have 2 thoughts, 1 A Capt. is a Capt. regardless of a check, if they are capable enough to be in charge for free why not when working part time ( fill in ) 2 What about the full timers who are there every day, knowing the routine of the day, and how else to have the ff's gain knowledge on running the shift.
