    I was just wondering what kinds of personal stuff; spanners, rope, wedges, ect., do you carry in your turnout gear?

    Just wondering.

    I carry 2 flashlights, 2 wedges, 1 folding spanner, 10' of webbing, 5' of 1/2" rope, and I am PARANOID of losing my gloves on a call. I carry 2 pair of fire gloves, 1 pair of work gloves, and 1 pair of extrication gloves. I also carry a short nomex hood, for extra and for thermal purposes.

    Lets hear more ideas

      I carry 2 flashlights ( a sabrelight and a mini-mag), a window punch, a couple glowsticks, 12' nylon webbing, a D-ring, a wedge or two, a multi-tool, a CPR mask, a pair of rubber gloves, and my fire gloves.

        Two flashlights (Pelican Super Sabres - in addition to helmet light), two 10 ft. sections of webbing, a carabiner, four wedges, channel lock pliers, two folding spanners [the new plastic ones w/ the seat belt cutter and window punch](hey Mark, whaddaya do w/ one?), work gloves (fire gloves hang on clip on outside), and (because my wife gave it to me [it's a real pain in the ***, but it has sentimental value]) a survival tool (digging, prying, valve-turning tool).

        Hood tip: I have mine sewn into the liner of my jacket. I can't lose it, I can don it as I don my coat, and it NEVER comes untucked.

          lol

          ok, ok, i'll admit it. I, too, am fascinated (for some odd reason) by what other people carry in their pockets. Sooooo, here's a link to the infamous "what's in those pockets" discussion... enjoy! Don't forget to add any unique things you carry...

                    2 flashlights both from pelican. one's a 4 aa and the other is a two "D" cell.
                    1 Gerber tool
                    2-3 chocks.
                    1 spare PASS device.
                    my nomex hood.
                    I use to carry an 8 D cell dive light in my bag on the truck untill someone else decided they needed it more then myself. It was a good light when you needed lots of illumination.
