Firefighters work a schedule consisting of two 24-hour shifts then four days off.
0700: Shift change. Personnel check their equipment and apparatus that they are staffing. It is each member’s responsibility to ensure that all tools and equipment are in proper working order.
0715: Workouts. Maintaining a high level of physical fitness is key to ensuring the safety of each member as well as the Burbank community.
1300: Various activities. This is an opportunity to review any changes in the shift objectives, perform fire prevention inspections, and/or attend company schools given by probationary Firefighters.
All of the above is in addition to the primary job which is protecting life, property and the environment every time the Burbank Fire Department responds to an incident.
