Local emergency services[1] operate '2 days, 2 nights, 4 off'.

Dayshifts are 10 hour 8am-6pm. Nightshift is 6pm until 8am. This
a 4-watch rotation.

I dunno from Ambulance -- they're load driven... by my understanding is that around here, the fire people are 3 days 
on, and 4 days off, or something 
similar to that.  Since they sleep in, they're effectively on-call at 
all times, and they've got enough people on a shift that they can do 
internal rotations as to who goes, unless it's a big enough call that they
all need to roll, which is a small enough percentage of calls to make 
it work.
