Can I claim my meals while at the fire station for 48 hour shifts

I work 48 shifts on the norm and sometimes up to 96 hours strait at the station.  What do I get to claim, do I get to claim this?

Per the IRS, meals (unless for overnight business travel) are considered a personal. non deductible expense
