    I carry a button that searches the forums, no seriously, I do!

    All joking put off to the side now...

    Other then my jacket/hood/pants/boots/helmet/fire gloves, I've got a couple pairs of "Purple Barney Gloves", a leatherman, flashlight, and my stethescope. The rest comes off the truck.

    Any thing Juniors/Explorers carry relating to different roles you play on the fireground. All other posts I've seen on the topic were in the regular firefighting forum. Anybody have something job specific that you use regularly as an explorer/junior that members who have never been in your role on the fireground don't much about.

    When I was a junior I always carried a few electrical adapters to aid in setting uplights when we had numerous different depts coming in with diff. connection points.

    I also found a helmet mounted flashlight to be extremely helpful as a junior so that I could have both hands free when working on things like lights, generators, saws, etc.

    I also tried to keep a 2 1/2 double female in my pocket so I'd have it if we were using 2 1/2 for supply purposes. As a junior I was regularly helping set up water supply so an old 2 1/2 double female is something I used regularly and helped me in performing my role on the fireground.

    I definatly can't say that I carry electrical or hose adapters in my turnouts, but I do have a pair of Kevlar gloves with a nitrile (I think) coating on the palm and fingers, this is really good for hooking up a hydrants, threading hoses, etc. I use them in competition and practice all the time.

    I carry a red clowns nose, Galls catalog, 3 FDNY patches, red light permit and various states of warm gummy bears that stick to the inside of my pockets.

    And underneath it all, a "I fight what you fear shirt"
