  • Maximum # of hours worked with no time off

    I work for a municipal fire rescue department in SC. We work a 24hr shift with 48hrs off between shifts. We often are required to work an additional 24hr shift of OT when the next duty shift is short which makes us work 48hrs straight with no break. I know fire rescue labor laws are different than normal but was just wondered what is the maximun # of hours we can be required to work without a break between shifts.
