    Post What do you carry in your POV?

    For all the Vollies that may go to scene's with their POV's, what do you keep in it and where? If it is a pickup truck, how do you store it all? Tool bax, bed cover, cap?

    I have a 96 Jeep Cherokee, I store all my stuff in the cargo area. I carry my bunker gear in a "step in" bag. Since I'm an EMT also, I carry a jump kit and O2 kit with me. I also have a maglight and FD/ambulance pullover, traffic vest and forestry hard hat. I can usually get to the scene quicker than our rescue vehicle, especially if it's in the northern end of town. Our rescue is stationed in the southern end. I have a mobile radio and I carry a portable also.

    I have a s-10 pickup with a tool box. I am usually one of the first on scene to calls, so I carry a bunch of stuff. I carry in the glove box a Haz Mat Guide, and NIOSH guide. Behind the seat i have a spare uniform and spare sweatshirt, a pair of bonoculars, and a flashlight. In the tool box I have my gear, hand tools, a box of latex gloves, a spare pair of firefighting gloves, a bls jumpkit, and a blanket. I also carry a portable and mobile radio.

    Some of you guys go a little over board don't you? We are not supposed to go to the scene unless we HAVE to drive past it to get to the station, but I do have a small basic jump kit,10lb dry chem, ax, pulaski,tow chain, roadside tri-angle reflecters, maglight, leather gloves, boots, hide-away strobes, mobile and portable radios and it is all kept in the toolbox of my fullsize 1999 GMC Sierra ext. cab 4x4.

    Stay safe

    I live about 1 block away from the station(In fact, all of our members live within 5 blocks of the station) so all I carry is my keys so that I can get in and get on a rig.

    Our chief has a little saying: "Lets take the big red trucks with the water to the fire this time."

    Things I carry in my POV:
    1. Me
    2. Sometimes my wife
    3. Sometimes my dogs
    4. Groceries (Please excuse any spelling. Note the time, I'm dispatching tonight and have the A/C out chasing smells and bells)
    5. One set turnout gear behind the seat in the cab.
    6. The all powerful cellphone.
    7. At least a weeks worth of McDonalds, Burger King or Wendys empty drink cups.

    Running a code is easy.
    The hard part starts when you bringem back and have a 30-40 min transport

    I carry my turnout gear, a rather large BLS jumpbag, Mag Lite, ERG book (HazMat), Flares, thats pretty much the extent of the Fire Rescue stuff. I do have a Mobile Radio though, and our dept issues everyone portables, so I'd have it with me too.

    Is this a gun collectors thread. many of you are able to legally carry a gun. I live in Texas, so thanks to G.W. Bush we can carry guns legally to protect ourselves.

    I have a BLS kit and o2, and I keep my TOG with me even though I live close to the station(you never know when youu are going to catch a call on the road), A good set of hand tools, a portable air tank, a battery booster pack, tie down straps, and a tow strap( all this mainly for my own use), the trusted mag light, a CB for hunting, a scanner cause I'm nosy, and the old dash laser. All that fits in my tool box of my truck, except my TOG, it rides in a waterproof bag in the bed.

    Nothing illegal about a shotgun. A hand gun has to be registered. Besides you need to aim with a pistol. Double ought 12 guage only requires pointing. Shoot first, you may not get a second chance.
