[[Image:FireTruck-GTA1-LibertyCity&ViceCity.png|thumb|200px|The Fire Truck spawned in [[Liberty City in GTA 1]], bearing no specific fire department marking.]]
Whilst unnamed in [[Grand Theft Auto 1]], [[Liberty City in GTA 1|the game's rendition of Liberty City]] spawns a [[Fire Truck]] model that is also shared with those appearing in [[Vice City in GTA 1|Vice City]]. Obviously, its dual use in two different cities means the Fire Truck lacks any proper label designating the vehicle as belonging to any specific Fire Department (i.e. the "FDLC" initials), unlike the [[City of San Andreas|San Andreas]] Fire Truck, featuring only a "FIRE" label on the roof.
As are other Emergency Services in the game, Liberty City's Fire Trucks only arrives at the scene of emergencies; specifically, where multiple vehicles are destroyed in explosions and are burning as a result.
==GTA III — GTA Liberty City Stories==
[[Image:FDLClogo-GTA3.png|left|99px|The FDLC logo in GTA III.]]
Like other emergency services in [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]], LCFD crews will arrive in a scene where fire from a player's [[Molotov Cocktail|Molotov cocktail]] or [[flamethrower]], or burning wrecks are raging, attempting to put the flames out using their [[Fire Truck]]'s powerful decked-mounted water cannon. Players can easily commandeer the LCFD's fire trucks to perform "[[Firefighter]]" side missions.
The Liberty City Fire Department has three stations, one located on each island. Fire trucks can usually be found parked outside each of the three stations. The stations' locations are as follows:
*[[Harwood]], [[Portland Island]]
*[[Belleville Park]], [[Staunton Island]]
*[[Francis International Airport, Shoreside Vale|Francis International Airport]], [[Shoreside Vale]]
In [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], there are two fire trucks located outside the Staunton Island Fire Station. After completion of the mission [[Karmageddon]] for [[Ned Burner]], entering the fire truck to the left (the player see in the game) will trigger the [[Karmageddon (side mission)|Karmageddon side mission]]. Completion of this will unlock a [[Molotov Cocktail]] spawn behind the fire station.
The FDLC in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories has several mottos, which can be spotted on the side of many firetrucks, these mottos include ''"Putting out since 1872"'' and ''"Don't burn in silence... dial 911"''.
The LCFD in GTA III is also implied to have an Air Division due to the presence of helicopters bearing the LCFD livery at Francis International Airport, but they are never seen using them.

Like in previous games, the Fire Department of Liberty City (FDLC) operates [[Fire Truck]]s in their service, and has several stations through out all of [[Liberty City in GTA IV Era|Liberty City]] and [[Alderney]]. The motto of the FDLC is "Feel The Burn"; this can be seen in fire houses as well as on all of the FDLC's apparatus.
Unlike previous renditions of fire departments, the GTA IV rendition of the FDLC is less responsive towards fire. They do not automatically rush to blazes, and can only be called in using the player's "911" [[Phone|mobile phone]] call. However, even if there is a fire and the player calls them, they will ignore it and leave after a few seconds. One of the only notable times the FDLC will respond to a fire is the mission "[[Rigged to Blow (GTA IV)|Rigged to Blow]]".
Overall the firefighters seem to have gotten an overhaul since GTA III, the firefighters now wear full turn out gear (resembles MorningPride gear as per to resemble FDNY), wear Air Packs (it looks like the Scott 4.5 model) and have helmets with patches that say ENGINE 69, also some gear is hung on racks, either to dry off or for firefighters who are not working.
In total, there are at least eight functional Fire Stations scattered all over Liberty City in GTA IV (fire stations in Alderney are not present in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|GTA: Chinatown Wars]], since Alderney is not featured in the game):
==List of Fire Stations in GTA IV==
* [[Dillon Street]], [[Rotterdam Hill]], [[Broker]], - [[Broker Fire Station]]
* [[Francis International Airport, Dukes|Francis International Airport]], [[Dukes]]. - [[Francis International Airport Fire Station]]
* [[Worm Street]], [[Northern Gardens]], [[Bohan]], - [[Bohan Fire Station]]
* [[Exeter Ave]]nue, [[Northwood]], [[Algonquin]]. Between [[Boleyn St]]. - [[Northwood Fire Station]]
* [[Frankfort Avenue]], [[Westminster]], Algonquin, also known as "Engine 47" (unmarked on map). - [[Westminster Fire Station]]
* [[Privateer Road]], [[Fishmarket South]], Algonquin. - [[Fishmarket South Fire Station]]
* Vitullo Avenue, [[Berchem]], [[Alderney]], also known as "Ladder Company No. 1" and "Engine Company No. 2". - [[Berchem Fire Department]]
* Hardtack Avenue, [[Tudor]], Alderney. - [[Tudor Fire Station]]
Note that in GTA IV, the only Fire Stations that have a parked fire truck outside the station are the ones in Bohan, Algonquin (with the exception of the Westminster Fire Station) and Alderney.

* In [[TBOGT|TBoGT]], when at the Fire Department on [[Worm Street]], and if the player gets the police on them, the security guards from [[The Triangle Club|The Triangle Strip Club]] will come running in with the police, although they are unarmed and can easily be killed.
* Unlike real firefighters, their protective gear is not fire proof, for example, if a [[Molotov Cocktail|molotov cocktail]] is thrown at them, they will be burned and thus killed or critically wounded by the extent of their burns.
