Once your vehicles are ready to go, you can either go through the training academy, or just right into the missions themselves. The missions are in 3 different locations - The Docks, the Zoo, and Flood missions. Use a variety of vehicles such as helicopters, fire engines, bulldozers, and rescue boats to complete the missions.
