Truck Company Equipment Cache
I've mentioned a few times that my department is a month out from taking delivery of a new 75' Quint. The way we operate is that even though the truck is a "Quint", we operate as the primary ladder company for our first due plus we have a good amount of coverage area on a mutual aid basis. The reason we have a quint is so that it can run as a back up to our wagon if it's out of service or we run it a bit as the daytime rig. We do not try to do both jobs with the one truck at any incident... one purpose or the other.
I have been blessed with the task of procuring the loose equipment for this rig. Mind you, being a quint we are a bit tight on space but I have faith that we can make anything work.
To the experianced Truckie's here...
What do you carry on your rig and why? Any special tools or tricks you may share? Other then PPV and a few odds and ends, we haven't updated our loose equipment in 15-20 years so we're looking for new and progressive ideas here. Trying to make this as open of a discussion as possible.
