  • What do you carry in your POV?

    For all the Vollies that may go to scene's with their POV's, what do you keep in it and where? If it is a pickup truck, how do you store it all? Tool bax, bed cover, cap?

    I have a 96 Jeep Cherokee, I store all my stuff in the cargo area. I carry my bunker gear in a "step in" bag. Since I'm an EMT also, I carry a jump kit and O2 kit with me. I also have a maglight and FD/ambulance pullover, traffic vest and forestry hard hat. I can usually get to the scene quicker than our rescue vehicle, especially if it's in the northern end of town. Our rescue is stationed in the southern end. I have a mobile radio and I carry a portable also.

        Diddo with EFDems841. I go first to medical calls and the guys get the trucks. Jump Kit and O2 Kit is the name of the game.

                  I have a s-10 pickup with a tool box. I am usually one of the first on scene to calls, so I carry a bunch of stuff. I carry in the glove box a Haz Mat Guide, and NIOSH guide. Behind the seat i have a spare uniform and spare sweatshirt, a pair of bonoculars, and a flashlight. In the tool box I have my gear, hand tools, a box of latex gloves, a spare pair of firefighting gloves, a bls jumpkit, and a blanket. I also carry a portable and mobile radio.

                        Some of you guys go a little over board don't you? We are not supposed to go to the scene unless we HAVE to drive past it to get to the station, but I do have a small basic jump kit,10lb dry chem, ax, pulaski,tow chain, roadside tri-angle reflecters, maglight, leather gloves, boots, hide-away strobes, mobile and portable radios and it is all kept in the toolbox of my fullsize 1999 GMC Sierra ext. cab 4x4.

                          I live about 1 block away from the station(In fact, all of our members live within 5 blocks of the station) so all I carry is my keys so that I can get in and get on a rig.

                          Our chief has a little saying: "Lets take the big red trucks with the water to the fire this time."

                              Things I carry in my POV:
                              1. Me
                              2. Sometimes my wife
                              3. Sometimes my dogs
                              4. Groceries (Please excuse any spelling. Note the time, I'm dispatching tonight and have the A/C out chasing smells and bells)
                              5. One set turnout gear behind the seat in the cab.
                              6. The all powerful cellphone.
                              7. At least a weeks worth of McDonalds, Burger King or Wendys empty drink cups.
