    Helmet-big fat rubber band with a garrity life light

    Jacket Left-left structure glove and extra life light

    Jacket Right-safety glasses in a hard case/resq wrench/EMS gloves/Right
    structure glove w/ hood packed on top of it (to make me
    remember

    Pants left-leather work gloves

    Pants right-tool organizer w/ gerber gator, s&w first responder knife, EMS
    shears, seat belt cutter, 2 penlights, 2 pens, and a vitals notepad

    The S&W knife is one of the best I have ever owned. It has served three years with me in places like Iraq, as a rural cop, and now fire/rescue. I have beat the crap out of it and it still keeps coming back for more.

    I definitely need to get some webbing though.

    In or on my coat:
    - A Streamlight Survivor flashlight
    - Shove knife for doors
    - Safety glasses (wrapped in a triangular bandage to keep from getting scratched up)
    - Notebook & pen
    - Small tool roll with a cheap 4-in-1 screwdriver, pliers, folding knife, glass punch, AC electric test light, and a couple small hex keys for resetting pull stations
    - Portable radio, with a Fox 40 whistle hanging on the speaker-mic (much better than yelling to get someone's attention when things are about to go bad)
    - Pair of ear plugs

    In my pants pockets:
    - One pair firefighting gloves, one pair for extrication
    - 3 or 4 small door/sprinkler chocks
    - folding spanner
    - Rope-hose tool (a 4 foot webbing loop with an extra-large carabiner on it
    - C-cell Pelican flashlight (for when the rechargeable Streamlight craps out, or when you need to look someplace you can't easily point the one on your coat
    - Pair of heavy-duty diagonal cutters with a lanyard attached (a must-have to free yourself from wire entaglements!)

    On a structure fire call, I also wear a gut belt with a 50' bailout rope, 16" "Truckie Tool" (a mini-halligan without the pike - amazing what you can get in to or out of with it), and a Streamlight Vulcan (lighter and just as bright as a Lightbox)

    I know it's a lot of stuff, but all of it gets used on a regular basis. I'd rather have it on the first trip, than have to go back to the engine to get it! If I was to consider pairing it down, the "must-haves" would be the firefighting gloves (duh), diagonal cutters, C-cell flashlight, door wedges, and portable radio. These will either keep you out of trouble, or give you a way to get out or get help if tings set ugly.

    Well,as I tell the kiddies at school visits,it's because I've found that if you are on a deserted and uncharted island,you can deal out a hand of solitaire and ten minutes later,some wise acre will be tapping your shoulder saying"Hey,man,I'm not sayin' nothin'but if you put that red 8 on the black nine,you can play out that game."
    If trapped,I intend to deal a hand and just wait.

    Interesting idea. I will be condensing and posting those results soon so we can try to get an idea of what "we" really need. It will be neat to see if it works. I know all of us have our thing, but if we could get it down to a few basic items, I think that would say a lot for the unity of firefighters nationwide. I hope to post those results shortly. Thanks.

    electrical tape

    Haven't seen this mentioned yet. When I joined up an older and wiser member gave me a roll of electrical tape and told me to keeep it in my gear. I keep it in the bottom of my radio pocket and have used it on several occasions -- it's never in the tool bag or easy to find on the rig when you need it.
