Oroville fire department did. They worked the Kelly 4/6 and went to 48s a few years back. All members love it from what I hear.

I'll take getting crushed for 2 days then getting the 4 off to recover. Also as stated above, cuts down on the commute
^^ agreed, we just switched to 48/96 and itís way better. You donít have those in between days after long nights. The joke here is that our schedule is Monday/ Friday / Saturday Saturday/ Sunday Sunday. There is so much more time to have your body catch up.
