What should we carry in our PFD's?
Our department will be buying Stears I4185 SAR PFD's for every riding position. We will be using them for shore-based rescue and to support boat operations by neighboring departments. Right now, I'm looking at two locking carabiners, a 15-foot piece of webbing, knife, whistle, and a 70-75 foot throwbag (NFPA compliant) for each PFD. We will probably use lightsticks instead of strobes for markers. Just wondering if anyone would/does carry anything else? Thanks in advance.
