Firefighter games can be categorized into driving, individual firefighter control, fire response organization, and puzzle-solving. Each type focuses on different aspects of rescuing people from fires, such as driving to the scene, extinguishing fires, or rescuing people. Puzzle games use traditional puzzle game models to simulate firefighting. Driving games are usually against the clock, while individual firefighter control games focus on rescuing people and putting out fires. Organization games require the player to send different vehicles to the scene of a fire, while puzzle games require problem-solving skills.

The different types of firefighter games can be classified as related to driving, controlling an individual firefighter, organizing a fire response, or solving puzzles. The different game types all focus on some element of rescuing people from a fire, but some focus on driving to the fire and others on the act of rescuing people or fighting the fire after arriving at the scene. Organization games require the player to send different vehicles to the scene of a fire to rescue anyone who is at risk. Puzzle games take a traditional puzzle game model, like connecting different sections of pipes from point A to point B, and apply it to firefighting.

Firefighter driving games focus on the process of moving from the fire station to the fire scene. These games usually have simplistic controls to handle driving and very basic objectives. The player may need to drive the fire truck to a nearby fire hydrant to fill up the truck before driving to the fire. Some driving games allow the player to put out the fire when arriving at the scene. These games are almost always against the clock, giving the player a set amount of time to reach the scene before the building burns down.

Firefighter games where the player controls a single firefighter generally revolve around rescuing people and putting out fires. Some games focus solely on one aspect or another. For example, a game might have the player control a single firefighter up a ladder, pointing the hose at the fire. These games usually have multiple areas of fire that the player can extinguish within a given amount of time. Other games focus on rescuing people who jump out of windows by placing a trampoline under them.

Organization firefighter games focus more on responding to the needs of the specific situation. The player has to send fire engines to fight fires, but may also have to send ambulances if people are injured. These games may also focus on assembling specific units of skilled workers to fight a fire effectively.

Puzzle-style firefighting games take aspects of classic puzzle games like Tetris and apply them to firefighting. For example, one game focuses on building a pipe from a fire hydrant to a nozzle using specific pieces, such as horizontal, vertical, and elbow joints. These games are usually set against the clock so that the player must use problem solving skills quickly to find a solution.
