I keep it simple. I have a folding spanner, a glow stick, and my nomex hood. I usually try to make a point to grab a flashlight off a rig if i can. I also grab a portable radio if i am hitting a hydrant.
Wonder if I need to carry more?
1 hose rope tool
2 folding spanners
Thanks for the idea's :cool:
I'm kinda new so I'm still working on my collection!
Anyway: rescue wrench, door chock, hinge hook, gerber tool, spyderco knife, bls guide, work gloves, a few pairs of Nomex gloves, flashlight, nomex hood
I think that's it
I carry one pair of electricians pliers, one pair of wire snips, ear plugs, eye protection, hearing protection, flashlight, a couple of "beaners," and an extra pass alarm just for comfort sake.
I can't understand why you guys need all this stuff... but any way I am not going to include my gloves and hood 'cause I consider that to be part of you standard TOG. In addition to that I have a peice of utility rope and a spanner wrench. I don't have a pocket knife in my gear b/c I usually have one in my pocket for work anyway. All those screwdrivers or pliers b/c we have a set of tools on every truck. I wonder if any of yall's helmets say "go-go gadget" on the back of it?
:eek: oh my god do i feel dirty and naked after reading all of this!!!!!!!!!! lol
Its all the same all i can say is i travel heavy
I dont even want to make a list it will take up a whole page
but its ok i dont reget carrying alot i use 98 % of it
Helmet has a door wedge and a Garrity LED Light, and if I could ever find my folding carpenter knife, it would be on their too. In my bunkers I keep a pair of extrication gloves, fire gloves, and my Nomex hood. On my bunkers I keep a Green LED Flasher and an identification card.
How the F'k do some of you people actually manage to walk into the building?
7 years later and some people still make "Tim the toolman Taylor" look like a complete novice.
Do you carry anything? I have a short length or rope, four keep-the-blood-away gloves, a FRED (leftover from Army RatPacks) for eating those little containers of fruit and some small change for the Coke machine. All tools I need are on the trucks. I must add that we don't have any high-rise buildings, so the tools are never far away. Oops, I forgot the barleysugar for masking that 0300 breath...
