Initial Response Tool Kit
Ok team, time for another "brain stormin" session. Our new heavy rescue has a compartment in the front step bumper that I want to put a small tool kit in that a responder can easily grab-n-go with as they initially approach the scene. Keeping in mind that this truck actually has a fully stocked tool box on board to provide about any tool you COULD need... I want to have this "jump kit" to have the minimum tools for a critical situation. This could mean a situation where you need to deal with something quickly, or when you have such a mess, that you may not have time to get back to the tool box right away.
So, here are some items that I have come up with:
Safety belt cutter
12" Pro-bar and/or 14" pry bar
Cable cutter pliars
Large flat head screwdriver
Combination screw driver
Box end wrenches (size to match those on battery terminal connections)
Roll of furnace tape ("Duct tape")
12' section of tubular webbing
Am I missing anything obvious, or is there some nifty tool you have in a jump kit like this that has really come in handy?
Also... if anyone uses a jump tool kit, what kind of box or bag do recommend we get to keep this stuff in?
