    Default What to carry in turnouts?

    What do you all carry in your turnouts? We are all juniors so dont post all this with structural stuff like door chocks and all of that extra $#!t. We cant go into a live burn so leave that at home.
    I carry
    In my coat: Flash hood, pen light, safety glasses, 2 pair medical gloves, knife
    Pants: Extrication gloves, flashlight, 2 pair medical gloves, knife

    Door wedges, pliers and webbing can be just as useful outside as inside. Flashlight and EMS gloves should be in everyone's pocket.

    I agree. Even though those are on the truck, when they are on you, that could make up a minute of time you could be doing something else.

    Left coat pocket....glove. Right coat pocket....glove.

    Left pants pocket....escape rope pack. Right pants pocket....hood and 25' length of webbing.


    That's about all I have needed in my 30+ years.

    Your imagination is no limit to what you can pack in the turnouts or helmet. As for me, a two cell D battery flash light, a pocket knife, some window wedges standard screwdriver, phillips screwdriver and a pair of channel lock pliers. The hood goes around my head or in the throat flap of my coat.
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....
