For sake of the mod, would it be reasonable if the medical refusals will only happen in the minor injuries like falls and the generic "person feeling ill" and "person down" calls?

Very much so, something like 30%-50% refusals for minor medical calls seems fairly realistic.

I'll be taking everyone's suggestions into consideration. For now, I'll go with the minor calls having the refusals, and they would only happen 50% of the time.


The Lima VFD ambulance has been completed.

Is lima FD going to be ALS or just have BLS volunteers?

BLS because its the most likely training they would have for the area. Beaverhead county also have a private EMS agency that has ALS qualified medics so it would seem redundant to have both as ALS.

I tired reading through a bunch of the comments and cant seem to find any information. 

Is there a rough ETA on this mod?
Can I download the unstable or alpha/beta version anywhere?

Asking for release dates is against site rules. You're new here so please be careful next time.

Minor update. I added bama's SCBA tank models to the firefighter models. I realized it would have been inappropriate that the mod didn't at least have some part of his firefighter models.

Person textures by Hoppah, SCBA tank model and textures by bama1234.

Is 3.0 going to be a public or private release whenever it is done?

I’m pretty sure it’s going to be public but don’t quote me

Not Montana related, but in West Virginia, all fire departments that carry an ambulance requires ALS training and as a result, some states and counties are requiring departments to start running ALS.

In NY where I am all fire companies have EMT-B ambulances. They used to have EMT-I but when AMR(previously Rural/Metro) came in with paramedic ambulances covering the town the fire companies went to only EMT-B. Generally fire companies here don't even transport because AMR takes every call even when they clearly are not needed

I need some guidance with this statute.

Does it mean that volunteers are lights only? I dont see the law prohibiting sirens, but it also isnt mentioned.

Found two links, one just stated what you found already and one is a forum post on a FF Forum which (although isn't an "official" source) states that Montana does not allow sirens on POVs.

Good find on that site, its very informative.

I'll set the POV's up accordingly.


I found out that one of Lima VFD's brush trucks is a donated rig from the Montana DNRC. The old GMC brush truck also appears to be one because of its apperance being similar to other DNRC trucks stationed elsewhere in the state. It now answers the color scheme question Ive had for a while.

Here's a newer DNRC truck which appears identical to a brush truck that Lima VFD has.

This leads to a question. What vehicles are these and what is the DNRC's role in supplying vehicles to departments? Do they act as their own department or are they the umbrella under which all FD's work?

So when I was involved in firefighting in Missouri I worked with management to get equipment. Basically the federal government distributes equipment (trucks, gear, random junk, etc) to state forestry departments. The state forestry departments then use some of the equipment themselves (used to be more back in the 80s and 90s) and distribute the rest to needy fire departments around the state. They distribute the stuff they kept too once they get better gear. I'd suspect that's how it works in most states. As for who has suppression responsibility that varies. I've found a link with info about Montana's jurisdiction here. Basically as I understand it DNRC responds to wildland fires on their own land and on land they are contracted to protect (USFS, NPS, BLM, BIA, basically federal areas not big enough to have their own response) and will assist local departments when requested as a mutual aid sort of deal. I would think they are NOT a umbrella, at least not functionally. They often respond when a local VFD can't put out a fire (it gets too big for initial attack units and is going to be a multi-day fire) and then they'll take over management of the fire along with the local authorities. Additional information about fire protection in Montana can be found here. They also provide aerial support for wildfires in the form of 5 helicopter based around the state. Apparently they also have a prison crew (Type 2 hand crew) that responds statewide when requested in partnership with department of corrections and the state police, info here.

Omfg, is this mod still in development?  This mod is super awesome and I really wish this was still being worked on to get a 2.0.2 or 3.0 or somethin.

The mod is alive and well, I just haven't had anything noteworthy to share.

Besides, I dont like showing off unfinished units, but I'll at least let these ones through because they have textures.

The Explorer is mine but is based off an LOD by EA Games.

Dodge pickup and Mack truck are all new models by me.
