    My stuff is hanging on the wall at the station. Some people keep it in their personal vehicles, but I don't want bulky, diry, wet, smelly stuff in my new truck. In fact, I've never carried mine in my personal vehicles in the five years I've been a member despite the fact that I have two sets.

    I am a career chief officer with a take home car (Crown Vic). My PPE is in the trunk of the car, just like when I was a volunteer many years ago. The plus side is I respond to the scene and always have it with me. The biggest downside is the winter. Nothing worse then putting on cold boots at the start of the incident. I usually take it inside on really cold days.

    The shift fire fighters leave their gear in one of the two station they are assigned.

    All of our firefighters are required to keep their gear in the station and respond to the station for calls.

    Just say no to POV response!

    Keep our stuff at the station. The veteran members that have more than one set keep it in their POV or at their house.

    All members respond to station unless the run is on the way to the station.

    Default Turnout storage?

    In my dept. we "Generally" keep our gear at the station. Those who live outside the district are allowed to keep their gear with them at their home because a call my be closer to them then they are to the station. But those who keep their gear with them at their house are required to go to the station unless the call is on the way to the station.

    At my station some keeps the gear there and others keep it at their home. I keep mine at home in a Galls bag. That way I can go straight to the fire instead of going to the firehouse, if I had to.

    Cool Gear

    My gear is stored in the back of my van in a red bag
    only the Chief Officers and the Career guys have their gear at the hall, we could store our gear there but we respond to in town calls directly so it does not make a lot of sense

    No.....I don't think that I will trust you. You don't seem to be the trustworthy type.

    Well.....which one is it. Is Galls the "only" reading material or are there others....make up your mind.

    Funny. I'm a volunteer and I've never read galls...EVER! Yet again your posts truly shows your lack of knowledge. Why don't you go "pay the toll" a bit more and stand infront of a semi!
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Since I am employed at three different departments, I have the luxury of having three sets of gear. I leave one set at my FT job, one set at the PT Job where I am a Lieutenant, and I carry the other set in my POV.

The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but who we know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice."

    Web Team,

    Do we have to inherit this obscene behavior from a person on your forums?

    Normally I keep my gear at the station but after tonight it will be going home with me. I usually get along great with the career staff but after one smart ***** career Lt. decided he needed room on the rack for the careeer staff and tossed mine in the trash.

    They don't have their own space for their gear? I'd have some words with this Lt. Thats crap!
