    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.

    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 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?

    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...

    Apart from issued kit, the only thing I carry is a decent set of sidecutters.

    Travel heavy? If what you carry in your turn out gear takes an entire page you are carrying way too much crap in your pockets.

    I'll second that..

    All I carry is some webbing, a combo screwdriver, extrication gloves, safety glasses, a few chemlights, and two or three wedges...then I have a knife, flashlight, fire gloves and bailout bag on my truck belt. That's it...and I barely use any of that stuff. I could not imagine carrying more than that..yikes.
