Several fire stations can be found on the map in GTA 5, some of them in better shape, some of them rundown and in poor condition. Perhaps the ugliest and most neglected of them is the small station located in Sandy Shores, the trailer park - so why recreating this one?

Partly because I wanted a small station for my game; I don't like the size of EA's default huge multilevel fire stations. And partly, because, well, it's in Sandy Shores; the exterior is a very close recreation, and since my most downloaded and faved stuff is the "Sandy Shores trailers", and I play my own mini Sandy Shores too in my game, I thought that a small career lot like this would fit the theme and complete the "pack".

Because of its small size, the station has no beds; on the other hand, the "on the clock" hours can be spent by the PC, the table-tennis table outside, or by the white board to increase skills. There's also an inventing workbench in the garage. The office is equipped with TV, mini-fridge and coffee machine. I have planted a few University EP-type herbs around the building to give sims collectibles, and there's a hidden "public picnic spot" on the picnic bench in the back - I have no idea if any sims will ever use that.

PLAYTEST: I tested the lot with a Lvl 6 firefighter sim, and the daily emergencies worked for me without issues. It might take several sim-days before the other firefighters show up, it seems the game need time to assign or reassign the townies for the career.

No CC, no stuff packs or Store items were used. It's been built still with the 1.67 game version. Since it's an Ambitions EP career lot, of course Ambitions is a must, and the following EPs are needed as well: World Adventures, Late Night, Generations, Seasons, Showtime, University Life, Island Paradise. *Edit: User feedback: it works smoothly without Island Paradise, its few objects will be replaced by proxy ones.

Lot Size: 25x20
Lot Price (furnished): 35,981
Lot Price (unfurnished): 22,786

Additional Credits:
To Rockstar Games for the exterior design of the building; and to the creator Coasterboi for the custom world Angel City that is the desert background on the pictures.

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.
