      Good Morning,
      I am looking for information on how other departments are handling their on calls for fire investigations. Currently we are running one inspector from Wednesday to Wednesday. As an example in addition to your normal daily duties it is expected that you will attend multiple calls throughout the week at any hour and still be in the office for the following morning and recently one inspector had three fires under various stages of investigation all at the same time. We will if authorized by a Deputy or Chief resort to calling in an other inspector, however this is voluntary and many times will not get anyone to come in and take on a fire. This system many times will result in the on call inspector being sleep deprived for their on call week and work a pile of extra hours.
      Looking to improve a broke system!
