Got what it takes to become a hero? In Emergency Fire Response (known in Europe as Fire Department), experience what life is really like for fire-fighters. Choose your team, vehicles and equipment! Keep your cool when faced with high-pressure situations… Your reactions, your strategy as well as your capacity to manage a team of firemen are the keys to success. Earlier we had the french demo and now DreamCatcher has released the English demo for their upcoming tactical/strategy fire fighting game. The demo sports a mission called '3D Million Dollars' where you must put out a fire in a gas station and save people trapped in a nearby building. Read more for download links ...

From here in, many lives depend on you, so learn to cope with the tough everyday responsibilities of life as a fire-fighter. As captain of your station, train up your team, teach them the basics of the profession and how to manage in emergencies, develop their resistance to stress… and most importantly, get your team through their missions successfully!

The spread of the fire, the number of people in danger... all this has to be taken into account on arrival at the scene of the fire. If you think that your guys can’t handle a fire, call in the specialists and choose amongst a large range of support vehicles. In the heat of action, overcome all obstacles blocking your way and you may find a strategic point of entry allowing you to extinguish a fire more rapidly.

Get rewarded for all your hard work: medals will be awarded to players that have saved the most lives whilst using limited resources.

Warning, failure is no longer an option: get your men in quickly where needed and drown out the flames…
