    Default Need cheap gear.....

    I am looking for some gear I need and wondering where to get it for a cheap price.( I don't have a job, unfourtionally ) I need a pair of Ringers Machanix gloves, a 50,000 candlepower flashlight, 2 spanner wrenches, and a window punch. Where would be the best place to buy these things and who would have a fast delivery time?

    Why are you going to purchase these things yourself? If you really need them the department will purchase them for you.

    Ive never heard of a paid FF that gets his own wrenches, spotlight, ect....What do you need all that extra stuff for, I don't understand why you just don't get it off the truck when you need it.

    Sometimes during a drill sh*t happens and its nice to have a flashlight,spanner wrench,multi tool or some rope instead of haveing to run to the truck every time you need something.The guys in my dept. carry spanners in there gear and other things in thier pockets as do probally every other person in the fire service.If you would like to run back to the trucks to track down a spanner every time be my guest.

    Count me as the first Firefighter you've heard of that buys equipment. I purchase stuff that I use personally. Lights, folding spanners, webbing, helmets, boots and all kinds of stuff.
    Usually the department doesn't buy a certain model, brand or quality of item that I personally want. So I will purchase it myself and use it myself.

    I am NOT, repeat NOT a paid firefighter, I am an explorer. I have to buy my own gear if I want it. We are given our TO coat& pant, I have my own helmet.boots, and gloves. I had the helmet,boots and gloves prior to my becomeing a explorer.
