if i had a truly popular opinion it’s that the legal faction management scope is so narrow and short sighted that any sort of new ground legal roleplay is shackled by a million restrictions to eventually die off into frustration led inactivity.
but considering the thread, i’m gonna double down some more.
The LScityFD should be remade into LSCountyFD, everyone in it should either be Firefighter/EMTs, Firefighter/Paramedics, or apart of the County Branch of lifeguards. Primary response should be done by Firefighter Paramedic squad trucks and Fire Engines, and private ambulances should be contracted to run EMS calls, out-bidding competition to create a cutt-throat EMS system a la Los Angela’s County’s main EMS system.
Let the primary Paramedics be Firefighters in Squad cars and Fire Engines, private companies ambulances used as transporting units, all cop medics should be restricted to Rescue 5 and LSPDs EMT-only SWAT cadre. Private Ambulance companies could be an OOC division of County Fire, but given some autonomy ICly, only contracted by the county. SAMR v. McCornnell v. Falcon or w/e names the Lore Private Ambulance companies want to use.
the typical lsrp LSFD style faction is outdated, kinda boring and prone to being a head with so many hats it struggles to fit into any of them. Diversification is the key to Fire/EMS, a jack of all trades is only destined to not be as cool.
