Duty Systems

Day Crewed and Self Roster stations operate a duty system where firefighters work shifts of 8am-6pm and then remain on call overnight to respond to incidents as required.  As such, Firefighters appointed to these stations must reside within four minutes of their station, during on duty periods, in order to meet their on-call responsibilities.     

The Day Crewed pattern is four days on duty and then days four off with an average of 42 working hours per week.  Additional allowances are payable in respect of the on-call requirement. 

The Self Roster shift pattern requires the same number of average hours and shifts to be worked but there is no set pattern of shifts. 

Shift stations are crewed 24/7 by firefighters who work shifts of 8am-6pm and 6pm-8am. The shift pattern is two day shifts, two night shifts and then four days off.
