Res-Q is a Town subtheme which focused on rescue missions. Most of the sets were released in 1998. After the theme's discontinuation, the Res-Q organization made a few cameo appearances in Studios, Football, and Jack Stone, as a rescue service. Res-Q sets and Res-Q styled boats have appeared in LEGO Island 2.
Most Res-Q sets, excepting 1069 Speedboat, had a bright yellow and black colour scheme, with additional white pieces, lights in transparent red, transparent blue, and transparent yellow, and transparent blue cockpits. Only four of the sets did not include a land vehicle - these were 1069 Speedboat and the identical 1097 RES-Q Runner, 6415 Res-Q Jet-Ski, and 6428 Wave Saver. The theme possesses a total of 6 constructed land vehicles and two motorcycles, for a total of 8 ground vehicles. All of the land vehicles are fairly small, and the largest is included in 6479 Emergency Response Center. The only digging/rubble clearing vehicle is included in 6473 Res-Q Cruiser. Res-Q has two aircraft - the small helicopter in 6479 Emergency Response Center, and 6462 Aerial Recovery, a large helicopter and the second largest vehicle in the theme. Res-Q also possesses a hovercraft, one of the few released - 6473 Res-Q Cruiser, and has four other water vehicles: 6451 River Response, 1069 Speedboat, 1097 RES-Q Runner, 6415 Res-Q Jet-Ski, and 6428 Wave Saver. The base of the theme is 6479 Emergency Response Center, which is a small base and four vehicles.
