Do you cook each shift??

Discuss the latest prepared disaster by the chief (oops... or was that 'the chef'?). Success stories welcome as well...

We have a brand new rookie in our station, who has already earned the nickname "hamburner"

If you miss your meal, or it is ruined, does the job buy it for you?

If we are cooking a meal then get tied up at an MVA or small fire and come back and its ruined, too bad so sad. But if its a multiple alarm, hazmat etc.. and we are there for an extended period of time the job pays for food and refreshment if need be.........BC................

Same goes here ... although I think half of the city would be on fire before they bought us dinner ... lol

Is that based on 2 meals a day in the 24hr shift?

Times minimum 4 guys, brother thats close to 100 spits combined. You can do some serious eating on that amount.Even 24 bucks a head can feed you quite nicely on takeout.

I know prices are a touch higher on the rock but c'mon!Grabbing the hind teat is one thing but you dont want to bruise it.

12 bucks seems to be about right. We average about 12 to 15 for two meals on our 24 hr shift. With 8 guys on duty that usually gets us around the 90 to 100 bucks to shop with. that will usually get us bacon and eggs with home fries and OJ for breaky and roast beast with mashed taters and gravy with a side of glazed carrots for supper. It also provides for brownies and ice cream for a snack :D . That being said we also have to pay 5 bucks a month at the start of the day shift to the shift coffee fund, this gets us the incidentals like milk, bread, peanut butter etc. So all in all we pay around 17 to 20 dollars to get us through the month without fadeing away ;) .

Depending what we are having.
We usually spend 10 to 15 for a two meal day!

My favorite meal at the station is “LOTS”
