Would the more literal: ' De brandweerman krijgt de kat uit de boom. ' be acceptable?

No, that would be "The fireman is able to get the cat out of the tree".

Thank you for the explanation. Although, had Duo asked "the fireman SAVES the cat from out of the tree", I think we would have used 'redt'. When you hover over 'gets', Duo offers the solution of 'krijgt'.
