The firefighter is an NPC who extinguishes house fires. They will be automatically called to a scene if a fire alarm goes off. If there is no alarm in the room where the fire is, it is best to phone them up quickly.
In The Sims, the firefighter is a male named Freddy, who is dressed in a yellow firefighter suit and carries a large fire extinguisher on his back. If called when there is a fire on the lot, he will immediately rush over to the fire and attempt to extinguish it, and will be able to extinguish it even if the fire is inaccessible. If called when there is no fire, he will fine the player's Sim §100. Like other NPCs in The Sims, he will arrive and leave the lot on foot. He cannot be interacted with in any way.
The Sims 2Edit
In The Sims 2, firefighters are full-fledged Sims, and can be interacted with by Sims. Sims can talk to them after they are done with their jobs, and relationships can be made with the firefighters. Firefighters can be married or moved in if the relationship is high enough.
Firefighters will come in a fire engine. If there is a fire, a firefighter will emerge from the engine and rush to the fire, and if the fire is very large, a second firefighter will come out. If they are called when there is no fire, there is a §500 fine, and the caller will get a negative memory of being fined, plus the negative memory of having a fire. Firefighter outfits are available through Debug Mode in Create a Sim.
Firefighters use the same fire extinguisher as Sims do, unlike The Sims, although they will use it more efficiently. Firefighters will prioritize saving Sims who are on fire over other objects. Firefighters are unable to extinguish fires that are inaccessible, and players will receive a notification about this.
If a fire starts when there is a firefighter on the lot, the firefighter will autonomously rush to the fire and put it out, regardless if the firefighter was invited over to the Sim's house as a guest, and not as an NPC.

The Sims 3Edit
Firefighters in The Sims 3 function similarly to those in The Sims 2. If Ambitions is installed, Sims are able to be in the Firefighter profession, allowing them to work at the fire station and respond to house fires or building disasters. Sims not in the profession can regularly visit the fire department, but will not have access to the fire engine or fire alarms.
