    Me too, except I am 55, retired from the career FD and live a half mile from POC FD#1, and 5 miles from POC FD #2.

    Still crazy after all these years!!

    If I might, I suggest adding a 6 way screwdriver. The kind that has a phillips head, flat head, torx and square drive bits. You would be surprised how often that comes in handy.

    Lid: Garrity light and 2 chocks.
    Radio pocket: 25' of rope and a 'biner (got idea from vententersearch)
    Coat pockets: serrated knife, shove knife, 6-in-1 screwdriver, a few door tags.
    Pants pockets: work gloves, 6 & 12' rolls of 2" webbing, vice-grips w/ chain, and modified Channel-Locks.
    I also have a tool bag that I keep on the rig, has a few more tools, extrication gloves & eye pro, spare hood, gloves, and the like. If you think you'll need something out of it, take it out while going down the road instead of carrying all of that extra weight with you. It's a good storage place for an 18" FatMax, too.

    Getting in on this late, but I've been slowly adding to what I carry over the last few months. Just got back on the FD here a year ago after a nearly 11 year hiatus that included 2 moves...

    Lid: 4 wedges (2 wood, 2 plastic), fully serrated 3" knife, old accountability tag (still waiting on a new one...), soon to be a UK 4AA light on there

    Coat: radio pocket- medical gloves, radio (still trying to get the chief to budget in radio straps)
    front pockets- hood, extrication gloves, retired-from-daily-use multi-tool and screwdriver bits, Garrity light
    Also have a right angle UK light clipped on along with structural gloves in a glove loop

    Pants: added a webbing harness between the liner and shell a few weeks ago with a locking 'biner, in the pockets I have a folding TFT spanner, trauma shears, a roll of 25-30' webbing with the ends tied into loops with non-locking 'biner, a 12' loop of webbing, a larger folding knife (4" I think, half serrated) and I don't remember what else off the top of my head....

    I still need to add cutters and some sort of bail-out rope to my pockets, just keep hoping I can convince the chief to buy them before I pony up myself..

    gotta have a flashlight with intermittent setting for SOS
    I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling. óChief Edward F. Croker
