A lot depends on what your assignment is. The necessary gear differs from what ground pounders carry; what engine crews carry; what helitack crews carry; etc.
The basic gear should include a fire shelter, drinking water, flagging, fusees, cord, needed personal protective equipment, etc. Check with some of the folks in your area to see what they carry and/or check with the recommended list in the S-130 training books.
Just remember to bring what you need as you may be out quite a distance from where your "stash" is and also you'll be carrying what you bring for the operational period.

You might also want to check the message asked by SMOKENJOE titled "What do you carry"
on this forums page. There are a lot of good replies which should give you a pretty good idea of what to pack and carry with you.
