Thats what I do! I have pretty much the basics in my turnouts, and a small bag with an extra hood, fire gloves, small personal tool, bottle of water, t-shirt and socks, cleanup gloves, winter hat, etc. Makes a HUGE difference in your gear in terms of weight!

Pants has 34' rope with 2 beaners in the right and seatbelt cutter and wire cutters in the left. Thats it for me...
2 pairs on Nitrile gloves

I try to keep my gear as light as possible while still getting the job done as fast as possbile and safely as possible

(1) LED AA Mini Maglite
(1) FUEL safety glasses
(1) small metal folding spanner wrench
(1) GALLS rescue multi-tool
Things I am going to add-
more wood chocks
Just some thoughts-
I don't carry 10 pairs of med gloves. 1) we dont run medicals in my dept. 2) explorers are not allowed to go to car wrecks
I don't carry gloves other than my regular fire ones. My dad, having been in the fire service for over 25 years, has told me not to carry any light duty gloves for clean up. He told me to always wear my real fire gloves no matter what. Now im not gonna argue with him because im sure hes learned the hard way. he carries fire gloves and extrication gloves, only because he can go to wrecks.
Stay Safe Brothers - Keep Putting The Wet Stuff On The Red Stuff
well for me it is
a wooden cross in the intertube light holder i have
a helmet light
2 sprinkler wedges
