      I carry my structural gear, and brush gear along with a wildland pack containing everything from a change of clothes, to an MRE, to 200 ft. of rescue rope. I also carry a BLS tramua kit, a 1.5 million candle power flash light, a 4 D cell mag light, collapsable shovel. I my gear bag for my bunkers I also carry some spare batteries, a 50 ft section of searh line, and 2 spare Garrity flashlights. The Brush gear get 2 2 quart canteens, a head lamp for fighting fire at night, a whiff mask and filters, and a small personal first aid kit. There is also a box a cylume sticks to mark roads to turn on at night in the more rural areas. thats in addition to the red lights and siren. I think thats all but who knows what else I can find in there that I have forgotten about. Yeah I know it is a lot but you never can tell what you will run up on out here and it really helps to be prepared.
      When the defecation hits the oscillation I'll be there.

              In my truck I carry a tool box with some assorted hand tools, a extigusher (so I can't spell!) a CB radio, ham radio, a flashlight, and in my toolbox on the bed I have some assorted trash and two fold up camp chairs and a fold up table, and a small 12V air pump, and some flares.

                  I carry nothing. Our department requires us to respond to the station before going on a call. We cover several hundred square miles but we still have to go to the station to get suited up and grab a truck.

                  I don't figure I'd do much good even fully dressed out without a pumper, hose, and some backup going into anything.

                  We don't even allow ( although some do anyway ) any type of light on the vehicle. The one thing we do require is that the volunteers live within 3 miles of the city ( even though we serve a 20 mile radius and then some.

                    Blue light and medical bag.We can respond to medicals if it is on way to station or real close to our home.
                    Fire calls everyone but the chief and asst.chief go to the station.
                    I have a friend that is the asst. director of a neighboring community ambulance service and he has everything but the AED and a strecther (yes he even has a backboard, straps and the like.)

                      Lets see, In my toolbox I have my bunker gear (pants, boots, coat, helmet, hood, gloves, goggles) in a mesh bag along with a folding spanner, cloth tape, flag tape, and a 2D Garity flashlight. I have a response toolbox with a couple flares, a flashlight, small first aid kit, snake bite kit, leather gloves, matches, trioxane fuels bars (good for starting controlled burns), space blanket and other odds and ends. I also carry a change of clothes and a light jacket. Somewhere buried in there is a 10# fire extinguisher and a reflective safety vest. In the cab, I carry another safety vest, a 3D maglite, a 1 million canldepower Spot light, a roll of blue shop towels, hand cleaner, towel, bandanas, a couple hats I wear on grass fires (I know I should wear a hardhat...), a Lowrance GPS, a pair of binoculars, a Buck Odyssey knife, a STORM safety whistle, duck tape, and what ever else gets thrown in there. Oh yeah, and sometimes my girlfriend I do have a Federal Signal Mini-Jet (all red) and MS4000 siren but neither have been installed yet, just haven't had the time. I carry all this because I live almost 15 minutes from the station and I am one of about four daytime responders able to do interior attacks. Yall stay safe and have fun.

                        be very careful carrying protective clothing in the car. Even in a gear bag, especially the mesh ones....UV degradation is a killer...

                              I've got a tool box, a small BLS box, a dry chem extinguisher, my brush gear (so it doesn't disappear from my locker), some empty tupperware containers, a spare set of clothes for work, and my work out gear(I usually move that to the front seat so that I feel guilty if I don't work out). I do not respond to calls POV. Our SOG doesn't allow it and I agree. What good can I do on an MVA or structure fire without a fire truck. Also, responding POV wrecks havoc on accountability.
