When your Sim is promoted to the Fire Chief level, you will get a 5000 Simoleon promotion. 

Place a Fire Station venue in your game and then make sure you list it as a “Fire Station”. The Fire Station must have a front desk and treadmills.
Join the Firefighter Career
Then your Sim will be promoted to go to work


You will spend 2 active days at the Fire Station getting to know the Firefighter Assistant and other firefighters. I know they aren’t showing up in the co-workers menu but that is something I am looking into.

Then once your Sim is promoted to Soot Stripper, you will begin the process of fighting fires all the way up to the Assistant Fire Chief career level. When you are notified of a fire, you will get a pop up.

You will select OK and then click the front desk. You will see the option to “Travel to lot on fire” and then you will travel to the new lot.

You will be prompted again to confirm your travel.

If you decide not to travel, you will get this notification.

When you get to the lot, you will be prompted to put out the fire. Some fires are invisible, some are seen and some take time to appear. I believe other firefighters will show up with you on the lot, and may put out fires. You need to get to the fire before them or you won’t get credit for putting out the fire and this means you will return to the fire station with no fires extinguished and it could impact your job performance.

Once your Sim has finished at the lot, click on your Sim and select “Return to fire station”

When you reach the Assistant Fire Chief and Fire Chief levels you will no longer fight fires, but play a key role in the fire station by checking up on firefighters, sending reports to the city hall and planning fire fighting strategies. You will also get a new career outfit as shown above in the video.

Sims with a degree in Biology or Psychology will jump to the Fire Safety Instructor level.
