    Default Tool Box Inventory

    I was recently asked to inventory our tool box on the Engine and Station shop. Looking for a list of what hand tools everyone carries on the engine, and what hand tools and power tools you keep on hand in the station.

    Thanks,

    Wesley

    Same stuff you have in your garage - sockets, wrenches, side-cutters, vise-grips, hack-saw, nut-drivers

    Same as above, as well as; Screw drivers, tin snips, elevator keys, train keys, Wire nuts, hose clamps, hammer, a bigger hammer, pipe patch kit, electrical tape, and more.

    Do yourself a favor and seal it after inventory so you don't need to inventory everything unless you find the seal broken. Works for us, we have all of the same tools in the garage to use in house. The only time we use the tool box from the rig is on a call.

    same as everyone else but we also have a second carbide tip chain for the saw and a wood cutting chain, sprinkler tongs, and the most important thing in the tool box duct tape.

    Don't forget saw-zalls with assorted blades, plug-n-dike, hammer staplers (red ones) that way you know who took your stapler and assorted allen wreches for shutting off pull stations.
    Be SAFE!!! Go home when your shift is done and enjoy life.

    We carry our Sawz-all blades with the saw, and the plug kit is seperate. But we do have lots of allen wrenches. Ours is a basic tool kit. Wrenches, sockets, hammers, screwdrivers, duct tape, WD40...

    My dept is a small rural dept and for years we would bring our own tools to work and fix the apparatus and such. This got to be a pain becuase when ever I needed a tool at the house sure enough that was the tool I left at the fire station. lol Now we have start buy the fire dept it own set of tools and we started slowly and basicly when we need a tool instead of getting it from the house we would go out and guy it. We started with the basics that would be in any tool box at the house but have since added a welder, air toolsand a metal cut off saw. So i wouldsuggest start with the basics and have a understand with the chief or the board that you can buy more of what you need and the need comes up.
