Fire Suppression Department Hub

Hello and welcome to your new Fire Suppression Department position.

Now, you may be asking yourself, 'what does this new position entail'? And let me tell you, it's very simple. We put out fires. Not physical fires, no, we leave that up to the Foundation Fire-Rescue Department. We deal in metaphorical fires.

For example, let's say a high-ranking member of the Foundation is offered a job by the Global Occult Coalition. This is not only a breach of contract on their behalf but also a serious fire risk for us. After all, what's stopping them from leaving and spilling all our secrets to them? We wouldn't want that to happen now, would we? No sir.

But what can we do to stop said fire from starting? I'm glad you asked. We simply remind them of why they chose to be employed with the Foundation in the first place. Everyone's got a family, don't they? We can use them as an example. No one wants any ill to befall their family. Their protection is part of what the Foundation offers. We cannot guarantee the safety of the family of someone who has impulsively terminated their employment.

That's not to say we will harm them, heavens no, but if something were to happen to them and we weren't able to respond to them, that would certainly be a tragedy now, wouldn't it? After all, the Foundation only has so many Mobile Task Forces and it cannot afford to stretch them so thin as to protect the family of an employee who is considering jumping ship.

What about an employee who smokes? Well, we would simply remind them of the excellent healthcare options the Foundation provides. The damage they are doing to their cardiovascular system is irreparable and only brought on by themselves, unfortunately. They will need our superior healthcare options in order to survive the trials and tribulations of the cancer they are inevitably bringing upon themselves. It's not our fault they smoke, we are simply trying our best to care for them.

But what about those pesky edge cases? The real toughies? That is where you, my dear problem solvers, come in. It will be your job to put out the fires these individuals can potentially cause in trying to leave.

Think of it as designing Special Containment Procedures for your coworkers. You will have to do whatever it takes to keep them in line and keep them within the Foundation. Because if one person leaves, more are sure to follow. Fire spreads quickly, and we don't want fires in the Foundation.

It will be your job to keep them quiet and keep them content. Because at the end of the day, we're all a family here at the Foundation. A big, happy family. And no one leaves our family.
