What are the NYC EMS tour shift start and end times on the FDNY Dispatch system for all ambulances, my understanding is they run three tours in a 24 hour period, and not all units operate on every tour.

Let's start with tour times. There are tours 05x13, 0530x1330, 06x14, 0630x1430, 07x15, 0730x1530, 08x16, 0830x1630, 09x17, 0930x1730, 1000x18. Those were times for day tours (AKA Tour 2). Now for the afternoon/evening tours (AKA Tour 3) just go eight hours later than the end times of tour 2. Overnight tours (AKA Tour 1) are not as many so they can start anywhere from 2100 to 0100. Some of the voluntary hospital units within the system run 12 hours shifts i.e. 0600x1800, 1800x0600 and son on.
