The last time I played ambitions with a firefighter a few years ago, I noticed the alarm would come but then when my FF would go to respond to them the action would drop and I couldn't go respond to this. I remember finding a fix. (I think it was that a certain firehouse type had to be installed on the lot but I can't remember?)
I haven't tried to play again to see if the issue still exists in my game, but has anyone had it before or lately and found a fix for it just in case I get into that bind as I'm planning to make a new FF when I finish all this reinstall business.
List of Towns, Problems, and Work Arounds
Isla Paradiso - Emergency call gets canceled when you click 'go to'. Instead: drive to property, enter the lot, only then choose put out fire. After that everything works the way it should.
Moonlight Falls - Small fires tend to drop, large ones do better. Try the tips below.
Twinbrook - No known issues yet.
If the emergency “drops” after you try to respond to it, try the following tips
- When the bell rings I send my sim to the lot where the fire is supposed to be. Make her really enter the property and then choose 'put out fire'
- Wait a few sim minutes to respond to fires. For whatever reason this sometimes is helping.
- Place a lot without a foundation ( like a garage) in every lot because often fires don’t spawn on elevated rooms.
