Fires have had a long history of burning down major cities, and if you’re not too careful, a fire can really do a number on yours. The risk of a fire breaking out grows as your city expands. To stop the spread of fire across your city, build a Fire Station.
Select your preferred Fire Station from the menu and move your cursor over the map. As you survey a suitable location, the roads around your building cursor are highlighted to indicate the Fire Station’s coverage area. Once you are satisfied with the location, left-click to place the building.
A single Fire Station can only protect a limited area, so improve coverage by adding more garages, or upgrade your services with a Large Fire Station. As your coverage grows, your fire services can even provide limited coverage to neighboring cities.
Use the Fire menu’s System Info to view information that can help prevent or prepare you for a major fire. View the number and types of fires extinguished per day.
While on the Fire menu, use the Data Map buttons to switch between different data maps.
