    Current Poll Results

    OK, here is a basic run-down so far. I definitely see some trends, which is cool. Some of the crazy items and minimally chosen things will not show unless they get more "votes" as we continue. They are ordered from most important to the least important from what we have at this point. Different items grouped together means that the votes were tied for these items thus far.

    1. Door Chocks - (Wedge-It, Hingestar, Wooden, etc.)

    2. Webbing & Biner(s) - (From lengths of 12' to 30')

    3. Smaller Flashlight

    4. Pliars, Vice Grips, Channel Locks
    - Cable/Wire Cutters
    - Multi-Tip Screw Driver

    5. Window Punch
    - Personal Escape Rope
    - Extrication/Work Gloves

    6. Sprinkler Stop
    - Multi-Tool (Leatherman, Gerber, etc.)

    7. Ear Plugs
    - Safety Glasses
    - EMS Gloves

    8. Shove Knife
    - Allen Wrench(s)
    - Door Strap(s)
    - Hose Tool/Strap

    9. Chalk
    - Utility Rope
    - Spanner (Folding or Regular)
    - Pocket Mask (CPR)

    10. Pen/Paper
    - Ratchet
    - Electricl Tape


    Don't stop now. We're just gettin' fired up. Need more to either prove or disprove current "trends." Tell us what YOU have in your pockets!

I've talked to a bunch of local guys about what they use it for, but can you guys include some feedback on it? I see a lot of that as part of your essentials. Thanks, and I'll get those numbers up shortly.

    I left it out but I also carry 3 carbiners. I use the 15 rope to make a 4 point harness, and connect them with a carbiner. I use a second carbiner like a figure 8 with 3 turn to repel with. The 3 would be to attach my rope to an anchor point.
    We are provided bailout bag attached to the bottom of our SCBAs, so this is now reduntant, but I still carry it. I have just chose to carry rope instead of webbing but both work.

    Although you can do MANY things with it, we primarily carry it for self rescue and buddy rescue. It's real easy to do a buddy drag or to tie a hasty harness around yourself or a buddy to lower out a window. Or, you can use the webbing to tie off to an anchor point for repelling if you have a harness on already.

    This is what I would consider "basic"...

    - pair of spare fire gloves

    - heavy-duty dikes or linesman pliers

    - buck type knife

    - multi tool (leatherman type)

    - heavy-duty webbing with loops & D-ring (Save-a-Jake would be better)

    - flashlight

    - a couple wedges (for sprinklers/doors)

    - personal escape rope

    - window punch

    - foldng spanner w/ gas shut off

    - A means of marking rooms/buildings that have been earched. We use a roll of bright orange tape, that stuff they mark constructon sites with.

    Left pants pocket - bag with individual slots for the following:spring loaded linemans pliers, 6 " Craftsmans Robo Grip pliers, 2 shims, door hinge stop plate, TFT combi-wrench, chalk, Buck knife, kerry key and shove knife.

    Left pants pocket beside bag - blue piece of 15' pre-sewn 1" flat H.D. webbing with aluminum autolock carabiner, spare carbon hood.

    Right pants pocket - Pelican LED flashlight, Ringers Extrication gloves, pouch with 30' of 8mm accessory cord and aluminum autolocking carabiner.

    Left coat pocket - pocket mask, pouch with spare nitrile gloves, earplugs

    Right coat pocket - small bag containing a pen, 2 power bars, Goody's brain ache powders, immodium and an insect bite/ sting stick as well as a particulate mask.

    On my S.C.B.A. I have a bail out bag with 70 ' of high temp 8mm rope, con space single pulley, aluminum autolocking carabiner and a 20' orange sling of 1" flat H.D. webbing.

    My coat has a H.D. anchor sling around the chest and it's secured with fold over PBI material that is closed with velcro to keep it secured and I keep a big hook Carabiner on it for lock offs on the Truck, ground ladders or bail out situations.

    I also have a Pelican Big Ed on the coat as a primary light.

    Seems like a lot when you take it all out but configured this way I can access everything with minimal effort and the immediate equipment can be accessed with a S.C.B.A. on.

    I also keep an extra bag with other stuff on the apparatus to allow for a comfortable extended stay on energency scenes.

    Minimalist I am not but I need very little to get me by and that makes me more comfortable on any scene.
