Our full-time dual-role staff work out of our Dinwiddie (Company 1) and McKenney (Company 3) fire stations.
We have six personnel assigned to each shift. At minimum staffing, two personnel are assigned to each station where they primarily staff an engine and a medic unit.
At maximum staffing, the two additional personnel are assigned to our Dinwiddie fire station to keep Engine 1 staffed with at least two personnel.
Our dual role personnel work a rotating 24-hour schedule that includes a 24/24 “hell week” and a 5-day break each cycle.
Our full-time EMS-only personnel staff an ALS medic unit out of Namozine (Company 4). They work a 40-hour work week on a modified 24/72 schedule.
Our Part-Time personnel work primarily at our Dinwiddie (Company 1) fire station. The goal of our part-time program is to staff an additional medic unit in the center of the county.
This allows our Dual Role staff to keep Engine 1 staffed during our peak call volume hours.
Part-time personnel primarily work from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. However, they may fill vacancies in the schedule for our full-time EMS-only staff.
