Stats - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- • Give a table extrapolating potential capacity using 1,000 households as a standard unit. o Using 3 hour window as the measurement tool o Using 7 hour window as the measurement tool o Include a column on number of buses need to cover the City (if it were broken into 1,000 household units) 3 hours vs. 7 hours o Include a column on number of staff needed (I would assume a 10 man team per bus including 1 driver, 2 navigators, 1 ham, 6 runners) 3 hours vs. 7 hours o Include number of police escorts needed as well. This number should match the number of buses used o Assuming a 7 hour run would be one shift could you create another table that has covering the City with (2) 7 hour shifts.
