    Exclamation Bunker Gear

    I was just wondering what kind of equipment everyone carried in their bunker gear. Besides a flash light and wire cutters what else? I am a rookie and looking for some help on what I should carry with me.

    Thanks

    Depends on your response area...I carry 20 foot webbing, door chocks, flashlight, leatherman, extra gloves, and a folding spanner wrench.

    Also, try doing a search. You may find more info there if response to your question is low.

    I agree with it depends on your running area and type of calls. I carry 30' rope, 15' of webbing tied with a water-knot into a large loop, small vise-grips, lineman pliers, a multitool with a small set of sockets(came with the multitool), utility knife, wooden wedges x2. This is all in my pants pockets. I carry EMS gloves, a smith and wesson H.R.T. knife, and disposable camera in my coat. On the outside of my coat is a flashlight, and my firefighting gloves. On my helmet I have a wooden door wedge and a metal door wedge(one that fits over hinges for commercial doors).

    I carry 30' of webbing with a carabiner, folding spanner wrench, linemans tool, 2 wedge-it's.

    Things to remember try to keep yourself "light" the more bulk and things in the pockets can be a hinderence when you need to get in tight places.

    I have been doing this for 17 years and this seems to work for me. But your area of operations may be different.
