Tri-Borough Fire Department is a role-playing group that specifically focuses on Fire and EMS. Tri-Borough Fire Department is one of the most realistic firefighting groups on PS3. Tri-Borough Fire Department is proud to have multiple members that are involved with the fire service, including the Fire Chief. TBFD holds shifts every Tuesday at 9:00PM and Thursday at 9:00PM EST. TBFD has been serving Dukes, Broker, and Bohan since 2008! TBFD is a group that does and is not getting all of the attention that it deserves.
There are multiple steps when joining TBFD. You will be questioned to make sure that you are the person that we are looking for. You will be trained basic knowledge in order for you to attend and assist on shifts. After being trained you will be placed on a probationary period where you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your skills. Additional training is available if needed.
During shifts we are dispatched to multiple types of calls, both medical and fire calls. If you are looking for a fire group that is full of realism and fun then TBFD might be the group for you. When a call goes out, the dispatching is so realistic that you will not realize that this is a game! No dull dispatching!
Tri-Borough Fire Department is run similar to Baltimore City Fire Department; therefore things may seem different from your local or favorite fire department. I’m sure you are wondering about the apparatus; check below for a list of the apparatus that we have.
TBFD currently has 4 engine companies. Our engine companies like most engines ONLY handle fire suppression. Our engines are not equipped with rescue equipment. The engines are equipped with ALS equipment.
TBFD has 2 squads. Squads in TBFD are similar to Rescue/Engines. Squads are equipped with fire suppression equipment, rescue equipment, as well as medical equipment. The squad is also ALS equipped.
Not much can be said about our medical units, they are all ALS equipped and contain your typical medical equipment.
Rescue 1 can be compared to a “heavy rescue”. Rescue 1 is a boxville and contains all of our rescue equipment; rescue 1 typically responds to special rescue assignments, if rescue 1 is in service then they will respond to vehicle accidents with entrapment.
Medflight is not staffed, but it is used when there is a special need for it such as a water rescue. The medflight helicopter is an annihilator. The helicopter does not rescue people from water, instead they are just used a spotter and a transport. Due to the risk they cannot perform water rescues.
FRB1 is Fire Rescue Boat 1. Our FRB1 is a dinghy which is used for water response calls. FRB1 is not staffed, but it is used for special occasions.
Hazmat 1 is not typically staffed, but we would like for it to be. Hazmat 1 of course has all of our hazmat equipment on it. The hazmat vehicle is an ambulance.
Tri-Borough Fire Department currently has 3 fire stations. The 1st is in Dukes, the 2nd is in Bohan, and the 3rd one is at the airport. Tri-Borough Fire Department is not a picky group when looking for members. All we ask is that you are dedicated and mature. We play on the regular Grand Theft Auto. You must have a microphone for obvious reasons. If you are not sure about the group feel free to do a ride-along. We don’t want you to sign-up and then change your mind, so do a ride-along and hopefully that will help you. If you aren’t very knowledgeable in the fire department or EMS field don’t worry about it, the training will teach you the basics and then you will learn more as you participate in shifts.
If you are interested in joining I urge you to contact MrMedicman (PSN ID). Please make sure that you add MrMedicman as well as me (FDLC_Rescue).
You are required to fill out an application and the reason that we have you fill out an application is so that we can know what you want to do and why you want to be here, unlike a lot of “clans” they do it just because that’s how it’s done in real life, not us.
You can also check out our recruitment video, it’s not the best but it’s better than nothing.

No, it is not an hack, I wish we could literally have people to save. This is how it works, we respond to calls both medical and fire. If we are dispatched to lets say a cardiac arrest, upon arrival we find a civilian and turn them into a "patient". We then assess them, that's when your imagination has to come into play. So if I am on a medic I would say "Medic 1 is on scene of a female white early 30's. She is unconscious, but breathing." Then I would go ahead and make up a pulse, sao2 level, blood pressure, and also what the EKG reading is, now a lot of our members don't know all of this stuff so it's not always included, but we try to teach them what we can.
Sadly due to the limitations in GTAIV we can only do so much, so for what we cannot do our imagination has to do it for us. I hope that this response has helped you, if not let me know and I would be more then happy to try to explain it better.
