A little late in responding, but we switched our FD to a 48/96 schedule a few years ago and have had great success. We have a few unique issues in our community that I think made this a very simple choice for us, so it may or may not work for everyone. Also, we don't provide EMS services so I don't know if there are nuances to applying that schedule to EMS.
