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
  • Station 4
    • Hazmat 222, Truck 223
  • Other
    • Marine 220 and 221

District 3 - "The North District"

  • Station 5
    • Battalion 300, Engine 345 and 346
  • Station 6 “North End Nightwatch”
    • Rescue 340, Truck 350

District 4 - "The West District"

  • Station 7
    • Battalion 400, Engine 401, UTV 402, Brush 403, Brush 404, and Wildland 405

 

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

144916044_SBFRLogo.thumb.png.457548b5de4c93659c18a46a1827d463.png

Area

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. 

 

Stations 

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.

My original post for the BVFD seems to have disappeared. Or perhaps that was on the old EB and I forgot to ever post it on here.

 

Anyway, here is the Brick Village FD. I apologize for the novel 🤣

 

The BVFD is a combination department comprised of two separate yet equally important entities: the Fire Department, which comprises the members, and the Fire District, which encompasses the Commissioners, paid staff, and is responsible for budgeting, maintenance, etc. Below is each station. After the stations, I will post the response guidelines. 

The Fire Department operates out of four stations. Each station has one fire Captain, one fire Lieutenant and one EMS Lieutenant. There is one EMS Captain for the department. The membership is broken down into the following:

Fire/Rescue: These are the firefighters, who make up the bulk of the membership. Firefighters can ride the ambulance as well.

Rescue: Individuals who choose to only do EMS. 

Fire Police: These members are responsible for scene safety and security. They will shut down traffic at incidents, ensure only responders have access to the scene, assist Command with mutual aid apparatus placement, etc. These are typically more senior members who wish to contribute without the rigors of active firefighting/EMS. They can ride the ambulance if they choose.

 

Headquarters:

Engine 1

Truck 1

Brush 1

Traffic 1

Ambulance 1-5

Ambulance 1-15

Medic 80 (24/7 staffed ALS flycar)

BLS 81 (career-staffed BLS flycar)

BLS 82 (volunteer-staffed BLS flycar)

Utility 90 (personnel transport)

Utility 91 (District vehicle/can be used as a personnel transport if needed)

Utility 92 (District vehicle/can be used as a personnel transport if needed)

 

Station 2:

Engine 2

Brush 2

Ambulance 2-5

Utility 93 (personnel transport)

Utility 95 (mechanic's truck)

 

Station 3:

Engine 3

Truck 3

Brush 3

Ambulance 3-5

Utility 94 (personnel transport)

 

Station 4:

Engine 4

Engine 14

Brush 4

Traffic 4

Ambulance 4-5

Ambulance 4-15

Utility 97 (personnel transport)

 

Take-home vehicles:

30 - Chief of Department

31 - 1st Assistant Chief

32 - 2nd Assistant Chief

96 - District Manager (in charge of all paid personnel)

 

 

The department utilizes a call-in system so that the dispatchers know how many volunteers are responding and to what location. Members go into the app and pick the station that they are going to (or whether they are responding direct, which is only allowed for EMTs on EMS calls).

For EMS runs: The medic (80) is first out to all EMS alarms, followed by 82 if it is staffed. 81 remains at the station. If a chauffeur is called in, but no EMT, the paid EMT will ride as the EMT. If an EMT is called in but not a chauffeur, the paid EMT will drive the ambulance. Should a full crew (driver and EMT call in), 81 will respond to the scene in the flycar.

For Fire runs: Each station has primary and secondary apparatus designated for different responses. Some of these are the same, but some differ between stations.

  • Vehicle and trash fires: The closest station will roll their brush truck first due, while the other stations roll an engine.
  • Brush fires and trail/woods rescues: Each station rolls their brush truck first due, followed by an engine.
  • Structural calls (includes all fire alarms, gas leaks, etc.): Stations 1 and 3 will roll their ladder first due, while the other stations roll the engine.
  • Technical rescues: Closest ladder responds first due while other stations roll the engine.
  • Mutual aids - fire: Closest station has priority. If they are not on the road within two minutes, it is fair game for any station to respond.
  • Mutual aids - EMS: If full crews call in to multiple stations, the closest station takes it. If not, whichever station has a crew can take it.
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Medic is first out for all MVAs. The closest station rolls the ambulance first due, followed by the engine. Exception: if there is reported fire or heavy rescue, engine is first due regardless. Remaining stations are to use their own discretion when determining what apparatus to take. 

 

I have inserted a table below if anyone needs clarification.
