Trying to have as realistic a setup as possible, but struggling with finding how fire officers are distributed. I'm guessing normally they'd just ride the main fire engine and not go in a separate vehicle.
How have others distributed them? 1-2 per station or do they tend to be located only at main stations? I'm currently set up in Dorset so it's D&W fire.
Thanks in advance
Realism with units is not really possible in game. It will significantly slow your progress.
Also the Fire Officer role in game is definitely one of the most unrealistic parts just now given that there are several fire officer ranks and all dispatched depending on incident, some are based at stations, some at area HQ some places it's from home. The game makes no reference to fire officer ranks just now and you will find you are probably best having several at each station to cover your calls.
Personally I play realistic locations only for Fire, Police and Ambulance. For HART and both aviation's I have no choice but play totally unrealistic given the limited number of these.
All my stations are being set up with the exact same unit structure, this is a lot easier to manage and ensure you are not delayed or restricted in play.
I would love to be able to be more realistic in the setup but unfortunately the game doesn't lend it's self to that.
