    I carry my hood (when not in use) and my eyeglass case in my inside coat pocket, I've got in my coat pockets, gloves for extrication, EMS shears, roll of tape, latex gloves, window punch, multi-tool, 4 in 1 screwdriver, spanner wrench (yes only one, I've used it as a hammer more than a wrench anyway, and am going to get a resqwrench soon) Pretty sure thats all. In my pants pockets I've got FF gloves, work gloves, super sabre light, and lock blade knife.

      I wish I had room to carry all the stuff you all list. I have 2 pockets on my gear (3 including radio pocket) All I can fit in them (they are leg pockets) is a pair of gloves, one on either side, folding spanner, chock blocks and nomex. On my helmet is a mini streamlight.

        Hmmmmmmm, let's see, I carry 60' of rope, 20' of webbing, 4 spanners, a pick-head axe, a 1 3/4" task force tip nozzle, 50' of 2 1/2" hose, a hose clamp, a deck gun w/ stacked tips, a K-12 saw, a halligan, and on my helmet I've mounted a whelen min-edge w/ rapid random flash!!!!!
        OK....OK...ALL KIDDING ASIDE!
        truthfully, in my coat I carry one pair of fire gloves, in my pants I carry a nomex hood, a pair of fire gloves and a pack of smokes!!

        I used to carry all sorts of S*#$ as well, however, I found that I usually didn't use any of it, and it just made me heavier and harder to walk! Seriously, I have found that I can perform harder and longer without the crap that I never used anyway!!

        Just my thoughts, in no way am I trying to get on peoples nerves, just voicing what I carry and why!

            I carry 1 disposable flashlight, one folding spanner and 1 pair of medical gloves. I hate feeling like a boat anchor with a ton of junk in my pockets and refuse to strap batteries to my head in the form of a flashlight(no need to put something explosive on my head)

                    I keep it simple. I have a folding spanner, a glow stick, and my nomex hood. I usually try to make a point to grab a flashlight off a rig if i can. I also grab a portable radio if i am hitting a hydrant.
                    These views are mine and mine alone.

                        I'm kinda new so I'm still working on my collection!

                        Anyway: rescue wrench, door chock, hinge hook, gerber tool, spyderco knife, bls guide, work gloves, a few pairs of Nomex gloves, flashlight, nomex hood

                        I think that's it

                          I carry one pair of electricians pliers, one pair of wire snips, ear plugs, eye protection, hearing protection, flashlight, a couple of "beaners," and an extra pass alarm just for comfort sake.

                            I can't understand why you guys need all this stuff... but any way I am not going to include my gloves and hood 'cause I consider that to be part of you standard TOG. In addition to that I have a peice of utility rope and a spanner wrench. I don't have a pocket knife in my gear b/c I usually have one in my pocket for work anyway. All those screwdrivers or pliers b/c we have a set of tools on every truck. I wonder if any of yall's helmets say "go-go gadget" on the back of it?
