The following document is the official PET handbook, written by the PET Chief, AnuCat. Please read it carefully.
Failure to follow the handbook may result in punishments, ranging from a simple warning to a demotion or even blacklist.
Any changes to this handbook will be made clear.
- Extinguish fires
- Heal injured personnel
- Resolve disasters
- Keep coolant and generators up using cargo trains
- Provide last-ditch support in the core, should it reach over/below 3000/-3000 degrees
Any PET uniform and ranktag may be worn while on duty. You can only take PET tools if your ranktag is on and your uniform is worn. This will be touched upon more in the handbook.
A certain degree of discipline and composure is expected from the attendee at all Pinewood events- listen to your superiors and treat all with respect.
Being “on duty” is defined by a number of factors and includes many ins and outs- also read up on the handbooks of Pinewood Builders Security Team and The Mayhem Syndicate for the best possible grasp on the restrictions you must abide by.
There are multiple event types that an attendee can get points from in PET. Events are hosted whenever a host would like, but are usually scheduled well in advance. Depending on the length and type, anywhere from 2-5 PET points can be earned from one event.
Patrols are the most common event hosted in PET. They are hosted regularly by Emergency Specialists and usually take place in public PBCC servers, though on special occasions another facility may be patrolled at. Under regular circumstances, a patrol can last as long as one hour and you can earn up to 5 PET points.
Trainings- sometimes also called “patrols”- are the secondary events in PET. They are most commonly hosted in the PET private servers of the PBCC and PBSTAC. You can earn up to 5 points in a normal training.
Access the respective PET private servers of PBCC and PBSTAC by running chat command “!petserver” while in the public game!
During all events, the following is required:
- One of the official PET Fire, PET Medical or PET HAZMAT uniforms- both shirt and pants. If you prefer not to spend ROBUX on a uniform, free uniform morphs can be found at both PBSTAC and PBCC.
- Respect for your fellow attendees and host.
- An attitude willing to participate and improve!
The Mayhem Syndicate and Raids
The Mayhem Syndicate is the raid group of PB and as such, will be a common adversary for any PET member. Certain rules need to be followed when dealing with Syndicate personnel, as well as when responding to their coordinated raids on the PBCC.
TMS Raids are another event PET can earn points from, but differ quite a bit from the norm in that they are actually a TMS event. PET must abide by a different set of rules and must respect all restrictions imposed.
TMS Raids are scheduled well beforehand however, the specific PBCC game server being raided is unknown until the time of the event. Once a raid begins, TMS will join the server and attempt to cause a meltdown, killing all PBST on sight by default. It is PET’s job to keep security forces healed however, this can often be easier said than done and because of that, PET personnel are better spent performing other tasks.
Effective PET duties at raids include:
- Repairing the coolant pipe
- Keeping generators and coolant tanks filled, whether it’s via cargo train or respective button
- Quickly dealing with radiation leaks and power outages
- Suppressing obstructive fire spreads and engaging the Emergency Fire Suppression System when necessary
- Despawning or disrupting potentially threatening nuke trains and helping to lead evacuation efforts
Even at raids, TMS will not be KoS (Kill on Sight) unless stated otherwise, by either a Raid Response Leader, Emergency Specialist or above!
Raid Response and Points
An official, pointed raid response will usually be held by either a Raid Response Leader or Emergency Specialist. It is your job as a PET responder to listen to the directions of the RRL or Specialist.
The amount of points that can be earned will vary depending on the raid’s level:
- A Level 0 Raid can award up to 3 points under normal attendance, with 4 being given as a bonus
- A Level 1 Raid can award up to 4 points under normal attendance, with 5 being given as a bonus
- A Level 2 Raid can award up to 5 points under normal attendance, with 6 being given as a bonus
- A Level 3 Raid, commonly referred to as a Mega Raid will usually have it’s pointing scale differ from Mega to Mega. For reference though, one can typically expect to earn 9 at most from normal attendance, with 10 or more being given as a bonus.
Raid point scales, like all point scales are very flexible and one should always keep that in mind!
PET will not always be welcome at raids. At the end of the day, raids are an event of TMS and due to that, others must respect the rules they decide to put into place (e.g. one raid, a host may prefer an all-out fight between TMS and PBST with all slots possible going to the fight). If PET is disallowed at a raid, you will know. It is your job as a respectful user to accept the fact and move on. Only a tiny fraction of the many, many raids hosted daily will impose rules restricting PET’s access and because of this, toxic and unsportsmanlike behavior on both sides regarding this matter will not be tolerated. Don’t cry and give a reason to restrict PET from more.
Ranking up in PET is simple. Once you earn enough points and meet the requirements of the rank, you will be ranked up. You will be ranked up in each of the PET Fire, PET Medical and PET HAZMAT groups, so to keep the simple roleplay ranks of the main PET group for those who wish to show no involvement. A higher rank gives you higher authority and enhanced permissions in PET, as well as minor gameplay buffs to the PET loadout med kit.
The entry rank for PET. In the subgroups, it is represented by the ranks Firefighter, Medical Team and HAZMAT Trainee in the PET Fire, Medical and HAZMAT teams respectively.
Trained Respondent (LR)

Elite Respondent (MR)
The third and final rank achievable by only points. It is represented by the ranks Elite Firefighter, Surgeon and HAZMAT Specialist in the PET Fire, Medical and HAZMAT teams respectively.
Required Points: 360 points

Take note, PET points, events and everything in between with the sole exception being ranks will always be centralized on the main PET group. That includes the group shout, and group wall. The subgroups are unused in all regards except for keeping track of ranks in a more sustainable manner.
