I wonder how well something like the following would work (seen in
paid fire/EMS circles):

24 on, 48 off.

But staff those 24 shifts with maybe 20% more than actually needed to
provide minimum coverage.

Of course, that all assumes that you can trust your guys to  work out
the dynamics of "hey, you watch for the next 30 while I take a break".
