    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
