Melissa.....yes you do get rest....we spend the day at the firehall or the hospital waiting for a call or transfer. We are able to go home to sleep at night.
we wear a pager and as long as we make it to the firehall in five mins or less we do have a certain amount of freedom.
Last night I was soaking in the bath and the pager went off, I had to jump out and run...thats the part that sucks....My normal schedule is 96 hrs on 96hrs off, but this tour I took an overtime day to help with all the spending I have done this Christmas...............I am trying to eat properly, especially when I am on call..........I cant afford to be dozey when working..lol...........
