In the sequel to Tonka Search & Rescue players assist Tonka Joe to help protect the city in four departments: mountain rescue, water rescue, the police and the fire station. Players can visit the different departments to prepare the vehicles (cleaning, equipping, test rides) and earn certificates of achievements. The level progress and medals are stored in a central dispatch center. It also contains a number of images children can print and color.
The town map acts as a central hub where the different locations are shown. When a department lights up, the player can visit it to start a mission. There are twelve missions in total and the player will control over thirteen different vehicles. The missions have the player help with traffic jams, floods, forest fires and ships in distress. They are usually presented as a mini-game where the player steers the vehicle using simple and forgiving mouse control.
