Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here is a modern take of what a 2 Engine Fire Department could look like. It is a fully custom design, not copied off of anything. Ideas and views of the look and feel for the fire station, and how it should be layed out or could be layed out floor plan wise, taken from actually years of experience as a firefighter. Trying to keep it as authentic as possible of what you might see in a real fire station near you. The fire station comes fully furnished, fully equipped, and fully functional and ready to be put to work.



It is a two story building. First Floor: Engine Bay, Main loby/ Entrance Area, Kitchen, Chief's Office/Sleeping Quarters, Locker area, Spare gear room, Engineers Room/ Hose Tower, Outside lounge and pool area.

*Note: Also includes a trophy/awards case in front loby area.*



Second Floor: Engine Bay Overlook, Main lounge area/ Recreation area, Sleeping Quarters, Laundry Room, Hose Tower Acess Area, Ladies Restroom, Mens Restroom.

*Note: There is also a small fallen firefighters display case on the 2nd floor main lounge/tv area.*



I hope everyone enjoys my work, this took me a bit of time to do. I didn't waste any detail, I wanted to make it as best as I possibly could. This is my first upload ever so I hope you all enjoy. Let me know what you think, I would love to hear your feed back.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I think this looks GREAT! and i could see a firestation looking and working this way. my brother is a vol. fireman and has been one for years, if his station looked this way i don't think any of the boys would want to leave or the few girls they have too for that matter. i think you did a great job! keep it up

Nope, just one big room. Kind of based off of how a real fire department would be like, like in Philly or New York. I've never seen any fire dept. have seperate sleeping areas, but I could be wrong. haha I did have the thought for that, but this just worked out so nicely.

Now I'll have to decide which current 40x40 lot to scrub so I can put this down. I need more 40x40 plots.

As long as you have open room along a road you can edit the world without CAW to add a new land plot.
