Shift Bid Help

I am looking for some insigt on how to improve our shift bid process, and was wondering how other services go about thier bid process.  Currently our bid is based on seniority, but I have heard of servcies who allow "buddy bidding" to keep partners and offer incentives for the bid process.  Any help would be appreciated.See More

Field Training Programs

We are looking to overhaul our Field Training Program and, in an effort to not reinvent the wheel, I am looking for some best practice tips for doing so.  Does anyone have some really good ideas for the selection, training, and use of field trainers?See More

What I am looking for is some insight on Fire Based Transfer Services.
