Supposed to be the New Capital City of SL, but no Fire Engines available in the city. I have personally seen the long response time for the fire trucks to arrive.

Do you expect fire brigade to be place is every corner? Read. How many units have been deployed. As for taking time to come, what do you expect when everyone wants to run a car and clutter the streets!
