** Note that emergency medical services in ''Emergency'' [[KeepItForeign follow the German model in all releases.]] This means that emergency physicians are dispatched into the field--optionally in a ded:icated fly car before ''2012'', and ''necessarily'' in ''2012''--to provide advanced life support measures, and "paramedics," who staff ambulances and are employed primarily to carry the stretcher, normally cannot do much medicine on their own. Tellingly, the latter personnel were translated as "orderlies" in the English release of the first game.

Added DiffLines:

*ConvectionSchmonvection: Heavily averted in ''Emergency 3''. Fires will damage vehicles and gradually injure people until they are downed (excluding firefighters) in a range around the burning object, however this effect is exaggerated, and fires will down people and blow up cars that are across a street.

* IncrediblyObviousBomb: Not ''super''-obvious from your top-down perspective, but with blinking lights and left out in the open for your [[MrFixit Engineer]] to [[BombDisposal disarm]].

Added DiffLines:

** The Engineer does less since ''Emergency 5.'' A police robot is provided instead for bomb disposal, and the recovery helicopter does not carry an Engineer.

* InstantDeathBullet: A ZigZaggingTrope with respect to police sniper rifles. In ''Emergency 4,'' in contrast to the [[AlmostLethalWeapons handguns]], a single shot from a police sniper rifle is invariably fatal. Since ''Emergency 5,'' the sniper rifles got [[Nerf nerfed]] in general and rifle wounds became survivable.

* InstantDeathBullet: In contrast to the [[AlmostLethalWeapons handguns]], a single shot from a police sniper is invariably fatal. There's nothing you can do for anyone subjected to this treatment except to transport the body.

* ''Emergency 2017'' features a mission in which the police must dissolve a nationalist demonstration and protect a refugee centre from arsonists. It's a relatively unsubtle nod to the (then-ongoing) European migrant crisis.
