I personally found this mission to be easier if you do it from Shady palms hospital cuz of all the time the beach pick ups give you.
I did it before unlocking the west island.
I am finding the Firetruck mission to be really hard tbh. Anyone know of the best area to complete that mission in? That and the RC mission on the beach with the little RC cars are annoying me to no end.
I've never even noticed the lack of a fire station in Vice Beach. Is it not possible to do Firefighter until you've unlocked the mainland?
Yeah you can but you have to find a way to start a fire and get the firetruck to spawn. I always wait until I complete Avery Carrington mission "DEMOLITION MAN" because it is the easiest way to get hold of a Firetruck before unlocking the mainland because after you destroy the building and complete the mission a firetruck shows up to the destroyed building. Of course the Avery Carrington missions are not the main story missions but more like side missions I just always do them right after I finish the first missions with Ken Rosenberg
