Paid Emergency Leave for Police & Fire

The current legislation provides 80 hours of paid emergency leave to full-time employees. While this is manageable for the traditional full-time employees on an administrative schedule (80 hours), it does not provide for full shifts for Police and Fire who typically work 12 and or 24 hour shifts. Will there be any clarification to the hours provided for Police and Fire? Will the clarification define who is included in Police and Fire (ie: Dispatch/Communications, Detention, etc.)? Thank you.
