    I carry all of that plus a spare section of hose and am considering adding a gas powered vent fan or a floor runner haven't decided yet though. I considered just carrying what I need but someone has to pay for my Chiropracters kids tuition.

    Res343cue's not around here anymore. He's a well-seasoned/very knowledgeable FF/EMT who has a very full-time job outside of the FD.
    You're missing the point of where he was coming from. Think abut departments that don't have the luxury of everyone having their own SCBA masks... Would you like it if someone who had a history of cold sores and didn't scrub and disinfect the mask they used it and you were the lucky one to use it next? Some people are lazy and just don't have any regards for others when it comes to things like this... So to watch out for yourself and your brother, get your own equipment.

    since im still a junior and dont have any training, i put on my turnout and helmet, stick my fire gloves and an extra pair of leather gloves in my pockets and fill extra space with water bottles. im a gopher pretty much and when the guys come out most of the time they are thirsty so i give them water. that is in between filling up their empty air bottles.

    You want to fight fire and you are worried about earwax?
    343 has forgotten about more fire than you will ever see in a lifetime. And for the record, I have an earwax problem, and when I practiced as an EMT I also carried my own set of ears, as I didnt expect anyone else to want to use a set of ears with my ear gook all over them. NOW GO DO YOUR HOMEWORK. If your homework is all done, go clean all the tools on the first out engine. If that is done, go clean the tools on the second out engine. If that is done, clean all the tools on every other piece of apparatus in the firehouse. When THAT is all done, go clean the firehouse. When THAT is all done, you may ASK permission to come into the Rec Room and watch TV. We will consider allowing you to watch TV for one hour, as long as the dishes from dinner are all cleaned and put away.

    Act like a proby and ask a proby question- get treated like one!
