    Thats cool and all, i myself love having all that cool stuff...But i wanted to know why you carry all that stuff around with you? i only carry a survivor light, 2 door choks, gloves on my coat a hood inside the top of my helmet,a have a knife in my coat pocket and some search rope and biner..and i only carry them if the drill renders its use...some of the stuff you carry seems a bit useless, but don't take it offensivly, just stay safe!!!!

    Hey, the reason i carry all that stuff is that we are expected to carry out alot of activites on calls. Also i use them quite often on drills training and on calls. It seems like alot but its not really

    I have small pockets. In my left coat pocket is my left glove. In my right coat pocket is my right glove. In my radio pocket are my safety glasses. Right pant's leg has my hood, and the left has my flashlight. And that's all that fits.

    Peace, and stay safe.

    RescueJay, the more i think about it, the more i wonder, how in the hell do you fit all that stuff in your pockets, do you "clink" when you walk, or do you pull a little radio flyer wagon around on scene that contains all your tools. just curious.
