Flash Point: Fire Rescue is a 2011 thematic cooperative board game designed by Kevin Lanzing with the help of firefighters. The objective is for players to work together to rescue people and animals from a burning building before it collapses. Since the initial release of the game several expansions have been published, which add additional scenarios for players experience. These include fires in a high rise building, a two-story house, and a submarine.
Players are firefighters who at the simplest "family" level can move, put out fires, cut through walls and rescue victims; higher levels introduce specialized roles such as the fire captain, the engine operator, hazmat technicians and paramedics. The game "owe[s] a lot to Pandemic."
