Brickford City Fire Rescue:

Operating in a ~40 Square Mile area, Brickford City Fire Rescue is a full time, 24/7/365 Fire Department, split into 4 unique districts (or battalions). Each battalion covers a unique area of the city, has it's own color scheme, and a unique set of call signs. Each district may also have it's own specialty vehicles, such as Hazmat, ARFF, Marine, and Wildland. BCFR Staff train constantly and are always engaging in community outreach events...the crazy color schemes are a big hit with kids!

The call sign system as mentioned previously is rather unique and prevents confusion at large emergency scenes. The call sign system works as follows: First letter of the district (S,E,N,W)

First Letter of the Unit (E for Engine for example)

a dash

The number of the district (1,2,3,4)

The unit number. (SE-135 is "South Engine - District 1 Unit 35")


Department Structure:

District 1 - "The South District"

  • Station 1
    • Engine 112, Engine 135, Battalion 100, Truck 134
  • Station 2 "Polar Express" and "Pride of The South Side"
    • Rescue 115, Ladder 124

District 2 - "The East District"

  • Station 3
    • Battalion 200, Engine 224, IRT 225 and 226

Brickford City Emergency Medical Services:

Brickford City provides exceptional medical care to its citizens by way of Brickford City EMS and BC General Hospital. BCEMS started a groundbreaking program, providing ambulance rides free of charge by allocating some of their yearly budget along with public donations and financial support from BC General. This program has seen a lot of success, as more people are willing to call for an ambulance and get care they need. BCEMS also offers specialty units, such as HazMat Decontamination/Mass Casualty Response, Special Operations, and a Paramedic interceptor.


Department Structure:

  • Districts 1 and 2- "The South and East Districts"
    • Supervisor 1-1, Ambulance 1-4 and 1-5
  • Districts 3 and 4 - "The North and West Districts"
    • Supervisor 2-2, Ambulances 2-3 and 2-6
  • City Wide:
    • BC-11 (Decon/MC), BC-12 (Paramedic Intercept), BC-15 (Special Operations and Emergency Logistics)


Mutual Aid:

All 4 Districts can respond anywhere within another district if needed. Many specialty units such as Hazmat 222, the IRT trucks, wildland trucks and the two rescues respond whenever needed. Rescue 340 “Northend Nightwatch” for example specializes in collapse rescue and night ops, and often get called anywhere. Outside of the district, Algonquin Fire Department provides aid for wildland fires and Lego Regional Fire Authority a spare engine.

San Brickardo Fire Rescue



SBFR serves a very large sprawling coastal city of San Brickardo with a population of approximately 4 million minifigs. To the "central" it is very urban downtown with modern high-rises lining the waterfront, to the east there is the large San Brickardo Beach, and to the west is Holly-brick and lots of wealthy housing. SBFR provides water rescue (dive rescue), fire, rescue, and medical services to the entire city. This fire department will have  3 battalions (this will be updated as I plan out more) but for now I've only got 1. 



So far, 5 stations planned, 1 station built. All of the following stations are in Battalion 2. 

Station 5 (Elm Ave, the area shown recently, station already built, renders coming soon)

Engine 5

Station 6 (The Santa Monica Coconuts)

Engine 6, Medic 6, Rescue 6 

(Cross-staffed: High Rise 6, Dive Rescue 6)

Station 4 (Little Italy/downtown)

Engine 4, Ladder 4, Battalion 2, Medic 4, Command 4. 

Station 7 (Little Italy)

Unnamed marine station

Fire Alarm Box Numbering

First digit = Battalion

Second Digit = First Due Station

Third Digit = Box Number.

Ex, Box 251 is Battalion 2, Station 5, Box 1. 

Mutual Aid

SBFR is still quite a new department and is offering regular units for Mutual Aid as well as its specialist teams like its Dive Rescue team, and Urban/High-rise firefighting team, and Collapse Rescue team. Contact Rescue 423 for Mutual Aid. This thread is still being edited as I develop more on SBFR.
