  • Fireman's personal vehicle

    Well this is my first thread so here goes. I just purchased a toolbox for my pov. In it, I have my bunker gear, medical bag, fire extinguisher, vest, and a great light. What are some other items a firefighter/ first responder should keep in there pov. I respond to medical and fire calls.

    By the way.... Osama Bin Laden is dead !! God bless America!

    What else would you need? Shouldn't the BRT have anything else you might need?

    "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

          Both departments are Volunteer...Sorry I forgot to mention.

          We are recommended to keep a medical bag and turnout gear.

            In my truck toolbox I carry... go figure.... my tools! haha

            But I also carry the set of turnouts that I use when I am teaching and a jump bag with some first aid stuff and a box of gloves. Also have a mag lite and some flares.

            Should probably look into getting a fire extinguisher.

            Glad I went with the contractor size weatherguard tool box. You can fit 4 golf bags in the thing if I were ever to clean all my crap out. It was definitely worth the extra cash.

              Thanks backsteprescue! I put a fire extinguisher in today. That slipped my mind. Lol My box could probably hold about 3 bunker gear bags. It's low profile so it's not huge. I got my back seat of my truck back again though.lol thanks a bunch!

                Jumper cables. Someone ALWAYS leaves their lights on at a emergency scene. T.C.

                      Many years ago (before I was a FF, but after horses...) the FD's "resuscitator truck" (first responder vehicle, before the EMS first responder concept took off) quit at a night fire. Of course, the red light and headlights were still on. Do you realize how much juice those Model 17 BeaconRays draw?

                      I usually have my turnouts with me. The back of the truck, which has been referred to as "Home Depot" by others, has flares, fire extinguishers, a tool box, even a roll of scene tape...
                      Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.
