I’m new to the game and wanted to pick my town to start in. But I was thinking, looking on the map, I don’t have many “mutual aid” calls in the area (live in a small town). Should I pick a bigger city to have more calls?
I would pick a bigger city to start out with. This will give you more stations to build and the more fire stations you build the more missions you can have,
On this when you have 25 stations a mix of police and fire you will be able to build a 2nd dispatch centre at which time you could go back to your home town and build in that area
To stop bigger missions you use the dispatch centre to attach only the stations for that area, click on a dispatch centre then scroll down and click the edit button. You want to tick the box for create own coverage area then click save
This means if that dispatch centre only has 2 fire stations attached you will only get the missions spawn that 2 fire stations unlocks
