  • Carrying extra bag on truck

    So I have searched the forums high and low to no avail. I'm checking see if anyone else carries a small bag on the truck with them. With winter settling in and fires becoming more prevalent I was wondering if anyone else does and what do you keep in them. I know some may not due to space issues. Thanks

    Firefighting gloves, sweatshirt, t-shirt, small towel, knit watch cap, nomex hood, orange fireball gloves for picking up, sox. All fits in a small gym bag, no space issue.

      Yep, a small bag to include a hat, extra hood, and gloves. The bag is small enough that it doesn't take any space at all.

        Here is one recent semi-related thread:

        http://www.firehouse.com/forums/showthread.php?t=117906

        covers variety of bags (day, tour, backup uniforms, etc) as well as what to keep in locker, etc.

        As for what I bring with me - "(SCBA mask bag) has spares (hood, FF gloves, work gloves) and in winter I'll add a LS t-shirt and ice-grippers to fit my FF boots in case of an extra."

        Forgot to list for winter a knit watch cap and waterproof/insulated work gloves.

          I carry a school back-pack style bag. I usually have 2 extra pairs each of firefighting gloves and rescue gloves, 2 hoods, a small towel, extra batteries (for flashlights and PASS device), extra socks, note pad and pen. I also try to carry a bottle or two of water, just in case refreshments aren't readily available at a fire.

            I carry a small duffel bag that has spare socks, hood, firefighting gloves, and leather chopper mitts with wool liners (Great for picking up after a winter fire). I also have a couple of bottles of water and granola or some type of snack bar. I have my specially doctored maps of the city, some hand sanitizer, and the most important thing of all, a tennis ball.

              What - expecting someone else to bring the rackets?

              I will bite - why the tennis ball?

                You just never know when a game of tennis might break out.

                It is there for those times when a fellow firefighter needs to get hit in the head with a tennis ball.

                  If thrown hard enough, it will break a window and not injure the unconscious person on the floor.

                    Oh, that's a much, much better idea than the golf ball.

                      While it doesn't get exceptionally cold here during the day in the winter, I will carry a small bag on one of the trucks with a winter hat, a spare pair of FF gloves, a couple of pairs of light neoprene or fleece gloves and a light sweatshirt. I carry a heavier sweatshirt in my POV for evening vollie responses when not on the clock or with my VFD.

                      I also carry a couple of candy bars for some energy during a long incident.

                        Let's see. A gum wrapper, a rubber band, a cool shiny rock that I found, some string, two Hot Wheels, 17 pennies, a safety pin, some lint, a sunflower seed, firecrackers, one of those badge stickers, a google eye, a novelty license plate with my name on it, some oxygen tubing, duct tape, half of a sock, tweezers, a pen light that doesn't work, the head off of a Six Million Dollar Man, and three mystery keys.

                            Pair of Wool Socks, LS T shirt, Sweat Shirt. Back at the Bay in my locker is a Full change of Clothes to include Underwear. Have been to runs where it took a good half hour under the shower to thaw out. I like the Chopper Mittens. Do you have link? Mine fell apart after thirty years.
