Hi, i think the price of beds should be reduced from 19K to 10K so its 100K for 10 beds

This is on our list and up the top regarding police things.
We're in the process of perhaps getting something else implemented on the police side first (secret for now) but this would probably be next on the list. If we can get it updated at the same time we will do our best.
Our plan was to have it so you would need training for it, as the Police School only has one course at the moment and so doesn't really benefit anyone once they've had their police aviation training, it makes sense to make better use of it. What are your thoughts on that? In real world you can't purchase a dog from a pet shop and have it fully trained within a police role.
We'll keep you updated if and when K9 units get the 'go ahead'
That sounds good, maybe you could add 3 different types of police unit, Public order van (can deal with mass brawls by them selves and can go to regular calls, also can carry up to 8 officers), K9 unit, 3 days training in a police school, Swat, 5 days training in police school

I would love to have a DIM unit, I just don't know where my nearest one is based, I think it's in Essex
It happened to me once before, I think it's very rare. It's a great bit of detail though
Update to my setup:
52 Fire stations
3 Helimed bases
12 Ambulance Stations
1 Fire Training School
I have little icons for my stations and they don't cover the map
Hi, i was thinking of an update for the recruiting system in mission chief, rather than recruit for 3 days and get a maximum of 3 people i think per day its a random chance to get 1-5 recruits randomly. a way you could add a coin system as well is that for 10 coins you get a guaranteed 15 recruits over the tree days
I love that we can make pictures for our stations but i think there should be an option to see aliance members building pictures aswell
I love the idea of a HART team being added, unfortunately the two counties in the uk that i am covering have no HART bases, I will have to make a fictional one if it ever comes
I know its not directly linked to this but it would be nice to see the ability to have 3 maximum personnel on a heli or if one of these cars becomes reality 3 in one of them
Probably a UK thing then.
Most, if not all air ambulances have response cars in the UK. On board every helicopter is a doctor who can administer additional medication an ambulance medic can't; this might be essential to stabilise them before transport. It could be the helicopter can't fly because of weather (often bad in the UK), because it can't fly at night (for whatever reason) or because there's no place to land, so rather than the doctor just sit at the base being useless they can deploy by car.
In places like London they can get to the majority of the city within about 10-15 minutes by car.

What's remarkable is the majority (and again might be all) of these services are all charities.
If it's not something that is expected in America then, being an American based game it probably won't be introduced. The solution would be to build a nearby Ambulance Station at more or less the same location and go from there.
I would do what you said with the ambulance station if it didnt cost 200K, i cant see much point in me placing down two ambulance stations at both of my Norwich and Cambridge helimeds just for 1 car at each, thats 408K just for two cars.
Another thing that the Air ambulance cars can do is if there is a patient who requires and air ambulance doctor but is near the air ambulances base (5-10 miles) it is cheaper to send the car rather than to send a helicopter. This would only apply to uk based people i think as this program was on Sky 1 but i think it was called Air Ambulance ER and there is one episode where the East Anglian Air Ambulance get a call to a nearby school and instead of taking the heli they take the car instead because it is quicker and cheaper.
Are you sure that these reserve appliances have crews though?? Im not sure how familiar you are with how the Fire Services are setup around the world, if your a fan of the emergency services or an actual firefighter yourself (as I am).We have Reserve (We call them relief) appliances in the main city of our region, (Taranaki). These relief appliances are NOT crewed at any time, and are only used to replace other appliances when they are out of action/having maintenance performed on them.
When an appliance, say for example 481, is due for a service, A mechanic or other Fire Service staff member will drive the relief appliance down to 481's station. They will drop the relief appliance off at that station, and then return to the workshop with 481. At this point the relief appliance becomes Acting 481 because it is no longer in a relief role. The true 481 is returned to its home station when it is serviced and fit for duty, and the relief appliance is returned to the workshop until it is needed again.
In my opinion if a reserve appliance actually is crewed, then it is no longer a reserve appliance, rather a normal appliance.
Does anyone agree with me? If you have any questions let me know, as i fear my explanation is not 100% clear to someone who doesn't already know the system.
These appliances are not crewed as they sit in a workshop rather than a firestation however more senior firefighters and fire enforcement officers still undergo training encase these vehicles are needed and/or they need more firefighters, another purpose these particular engines have is that they can be used by the military to provide fire cover if the fire service is on strike.
Fair point, but if there was a MVA near your reserve station surely the long journey time from an active station would just be the reality? I'm sure where the vehicles are being stored there is going to be a public road, or something that could potentially catch fire?
There are areas in my county where no calls generate because they're not near any station but of course in real life something could still happen.
you do have a good point but the place I am talking about is actually on an RAF base
The reason that I said about a reserve building is my county has a workshop that is not near the HQ and this is where they keep the reserve appliances, I think maybe the better option would be to have an option to disable calls around this building so if you have an appliance store in the middle of nowhere you can disable calls around it. The problem I see with not disabling calls around your building if it's in the middle of nowhere is if you get calls such as the industrial fire it could take a long time to get appliances to it, to get an appliance to an incident where my workshop/vehicle store would be from my nearest real life station takes 15 minutes and that is only a type 1 engine (I have tested this during a storm)
Then you could have an option on appliances to share the appliance with your alliance members and then whatever call they dispatch them too you would also get credits as it's you vehicle.
Or like what people in are alliance do they build a fire station and have that county's reserve vehicles there? And set the as state 6?
yea you could do something like that, you could have all the vehicles in it state 6 until they are needed and then you could either deploy them straight to an incident or send them to cover at another station, maybe a feature you could also have is the ability to allow certain members of your alliance access to the vehicles
I had an idea for a new building, it would cost 100k and would be very similar to a fire station however calls don't spawn around it, it would be a place where you could have reserve engines that you can use for large incidents or if they ever add the feature of having other engines provide cover at stations then these vehicles could be used for that aswell.
Normally I can attend most calls in under 4 minutes however for the larger calls, such as the industrial fire it can take me up to 30 minutes to get a specialist unit to the call
Hi, what is the purpose of fly cars, I always thought that they were rapid response vehicles for medics but I have been sending them to minor calls and every time it says ambulance is required but when I send an ambulance they end up not needing transport.
