    You mean the yellow ones they wear on their heads? I believe it is cheddar, but maybe a local will know more.

    Fire Engineering just did an article with a different type of wooden chock, pretty standard dimensions, but had a notch about half way back for laying directly over the hinge. I haven't had the inclination to cut any yet, im leaning more towards something like this:

    A LEO I know mentioned that carrying a pack of the strongest mints you can find will come in handy if you come across a badly decayed body. Doesn't eliminate the smell, but cuts it down a little. (You could also just run back out and grab an air pack off the engine, but that's not always practical...)

    I cut a notch in my door chocks to try it out. So far so good. The picture with the door chocks in the helmet would be good to place in a hinge but you can't place those under a door if you needed to. Those are still a great idea.

    Even after making my own post,I am reminded of a river captain I worked for years ago when on this particular night,I was Johnny-on-the-spot with tools that were needed to keep the boats running that day.We'd had need of wrenches,spare flashlight batteries,some band aids,and Gatorade(tm)to list a few things I had in my tote bag.
    We got back to the wharf at shift change and an oncoming Mate needed a spare battery for his walkie talkie,which just happened to be the same model as mine.
    When I loaned it out,my captain looked at me incredulously and remarked,"You are starting to scare me."and the dispatcher said"Only starting?Don't ask what he'd do if the boat got hijacked."
    We all carry what we think or know from experience that we will need,but let's not get to the point where we're carrying seabags clipped to out turnouts.
    Like the man said,"Travel light,travel fast".To that I can only say,"Be safe."

    Ummm, I carry an extra hood in my helmet, a set of wire cutters, a Pelican 4AA StealthLite, 15 foot of webbing and IF it's a working structure fire then I have a bag of personal life rope I'll carry. I keep those little wedges for about 3 fires and I end up losing them. I don't like to carry much in my pockets at all because the more weight you carry, the quicker you get tired.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.
