    I'm heading out early enough in the morning that I can partake in as much of the equipment expo as possible. Hopfully the snow won't keep me from making the early grant workshop, but I'm having my doubts. As it is I'd likely have to leave at 0800, which is earlier than I care to (I'd like to sleep past 0700 one time this year).

    I'll make sure I stop by your booth and have a looksy.

    Pancho--You'll find all kinds of topics on here about what to carry. Right now I keep lineman pliers, wire cutters (upgrading to cable cutters), a pair of mechanics gloves (rescue gloves work too, something to roll/load hose after a call and use on car wrecks), and a phillips and flat screwdriver. Several guys cut out the screwdrivers and lineman pliers with a leatherman.

    I've heard conflicting stories....we are supposedly testing sometime this.

    I also heard they are going to run another class off this list.

    No word exactly when either are supposed to happen.

    Alright, I'm looking to buy some doo-dads for firefighting. All I have is the essentials. I'm looking at getting a couple flashlights, maybe a belt, gloves, and anything else you guys might recommend. What is a good place to buy from and what do you recommend getting?
    Thanks,
    Tim

    Yo Mike, just noticed you were with the Trenton FD. My wifes mother grew up there and shes looking to move up there, recently married to Dale Johnson who lives up there. I might have to stop by next time I'm up there.
    Stay safe.

    I actually just remembered... I came up and toured the station one time and I believe you were the one that gave the tour. I wasn't sure if I wanted to be a cop or ff at the time, remember?
