NFPA 1720 Staffing & Deployment

I'm working on a FEMA SAFER grant proposal, which asks for the ideal number of active volunteer firefighters to adequately comply with NFPA 1720 Section 4.3. However, all I can find in that NFPA section is a statement that the agency should identify its ideal minimum staffing, but no formula or guidance about HOW to make that identification. The table 4.3.2 provides the information to determine minimum staff response to calls and minimum response time, but nothing about overall department staffing.


Can anyone advise how to figure this out?
