It however does have only 500 units of extinguishing chemical in it and you will have to get a new extinguisher when the current one runs out of chemical.
The Fire Axe is a crucial tool that enables you to knock down locked doors when there is a fire nearby. This allows you to access locked areas that are on fire and save those trapped inside. Left click with your mouse on a door to use this, it might take a few hits to knock a door open.
The Health Kit restores HP to injured players, and also cures bleeding. Use to heal an injured player.
Alternatively, use to heal your own bleeding (this can also be accomplished with bandages.)

There are two vehicles of which you can choose from depending on what you need to do.
This vehicle is used to respond to incidents which can be seen in the Police Computer. However, unlike the fire engine, you are allowed to patrol the city with this vehicle. Using this vehicle allows for shorter response times due to its greater top speed compared to the fire engine. You also are not able to use this vehicle as a portable water source for your fire hose. To use a fire hose while going around with this vehicle you need to be next to a fire hydrant.
This vehicle on the other hand can only be used when responding to incidents. You cannot actively patrol in this vehicle and must remain at a government station awaiting a call. You can use this vehicle as a source of water for your fire hose when there are no fire hydrants nearby.
To activate the emergency lights, press shift. For sirens, press Q . You can also use the bullhorn by pressing C.
In each vehicle you can access the police computer to see the current incidents, create new ones or look at the current employees by clicking F3.
