  1. Fighting the fires


It's not as simple as pulling up and spraying water at the fire. Different types of fire have different requirements 


To first get your hose type the command [ /hose] this will give you the normal water hose.

When you have the hose out you may change the type of resource that is sprayed from the hose from water to foam just by typing the command [ /foam] to change back to water just retype the command for the hose [ /hose] (You may need to use this when fighting fires as spraying water on a chemical or electrical fire could make it worse)


When using the hose you can change the pressure of the hose by using the up and down keys


To clear the smoke you can use the fans to do so to set up use the command [ /fan setup] to remove type the command [ /fan remove]


  1. RTC

  1. LFB Ladder truck


With the ladder truck you will need to set this up this is done by typing the command  [ /setupvehicle] do this when you get into the ladder truck before driving off once the ladder has been installed you will need to wait about 20 seconds before you can drive off ( this is just the game recognizing that the ladder has been connected) 


To take control of the ladder simply press the X key (can be done from in the truck, next to the truck or in the cage)


       (5.1) The controls for the movement of the cage are 


W.A.S.D = Ladder swivel or tilt
