What do you carry on/in your turnout gear/bunker gear?
I was wondering what you guy/ladies carry in/on your turnout gear? I was wondering becasue I my self consider myself a "pack rat." Some people love having all the right tools in the gear and some people don't even want to have pockets. What do you prefer and what tools to you carry?
My self this is all what I have:
2 lights on each side
2 Wooden wedges for a door stop and sprikler cut off
1 4 inch face sheild
2 Accountability Tags
1 Flashing light (LED)
1 Folded Confederate Flag (Inside the helmet)
1 Orange cloves for clean up
1 pair of socks
2 Pair of rubber gloves (Inside)
(I will be puting the gold ball in the outside pocket, that is a good idea)
20 Feet of rope
1 Res-Q Wrench (GET ON OF THOSE IF YOU CAN! THERE ARE THE BEST)
1 Pair of stuctural firefighting gloves
1 pair of extrication gloves
(Buying an extra spanner wrench, window punch, selt belt cutter, and also purchasing 20 feet of webbing)
1 pair of knee pads, I use them for classes that I take (I want to be protected, so I can use what I learn in class)
1 dollars with of dimes for snack machine
Also I have a no-mex and boots (nothing is on them but I am ordering the red, white, and blue no-mex and leather boots
You can never go wrong with to many tools, better safe than sorry!
What do you use?
Thanks for telling me what you carry, keep em' coming!
Wanted to say thanks for telling me what you carry in your gear. Since reading your posts I thought that the golf ball and the golf tee thing was a cool thing to have just incase, when I go to the store again, I also have added the stobe, flashing LED light. You carry some good things, I am just looking at things that for things that could better help me on the fire scene.
