[Suggestion] Fire extinguishers should not have an infinite amount

Suggestion for (MTA, Forum, website): MTA

Suggestion: Fire extinguishers should have only a limited amount it should be enough for maybe 15 fires. As currently, each firefighter should have only one fire extinguisher. When the fire extinguisher is empty, there should be two fire extinguishers in the fire truck with water cannon. 
In the fire car without water cannon should be four fire extinguishers to have an additional incentive to drive this car and because there is more space in the back.
This means that you have to go more often to the fire station to fill your vehicles with fire extinguishers. 

Why should this be added?: It would make for more variety. It would make you spend more time at the fire station and also have to go there to get new extinguishers. It would provide an extra incentive to use the water cannon. It would make you be more careful with the fire extinguisher amount. It would add more excitement.  

Anything else you'd like to add?: There is also already an inventory system so it shouldn't be that hard to implement. 

You could also consider setting up an inventory for each fire station, for example 20 fire extinguishers. This logistics component is debatable, but it would add a lot of variety and realism, and make you more careful with resources. If the fire department inventory is almost empty, then it must be refilled, either with a truck, transporter or the fire trucks and fire cars. 

You could also add that to the police stations, but I think it would be less interesting there except for weapon transports.

I cannot disable the bold. This is a forum bug.

Nope, just press enter instead of shift+enter, then you can disable it.

 

The reason why fire extinguishers are unlimited is because they're basically "mimicking" a fire hose as it was the easiest way for us to do the FD system. Lets face it, extinguishing a huge building fire with a fire extinguisher is as unrealistic as them being unlimited therefore I personally don't see a reason why we should limit the fire extinguishers for the FD at the moment until and unless we add a proper fire hose system then it is something worth considering for "hard to reach" areas.

The bold button does not work and neither does (Ctrl + B).

The reasons for this are given above. And by the time this hose system is developed, another four years will have passed, so it would be a faster and simpler temporary solution.

Moreover, fire extinguishers should be used even after there will be the hose system, because fire extinguishers can be used for small fires or when you have no water, for example. But here also fire extinguishers should not be unlimited.

Yeah, no.

Ok, you're right. We'd rather leave it as it is, then I'm sure more people will play firefighter, because it's so varied and a lot of fun. You know how to make the fire department more attractive.
