    Helmet has a door wedge and a Garrity LED Light, and if I could ever find my folding carpenter knife, it would be on their too. In my bunkers I keep a pair of extrication gloves, fire gloves, and my Nomex hood. On my bunkers I keep a Green LED Flasher and an identification card.

      How the F'k do some of you people actually manage to walk into the building?

        Do you carry anything? I have a short length or rope, four keep-the-blood-away gloves, a FRED (leftover from Army RatPacks) for eating those little containers of fruit and some small change for the Coke machine. All tools I need are on the trucks. I must add that we don't have any high-rise buildings, so the tools are never far away. Oops, I forgot the barleysugar for masking that 0300 breath...

          Apart from issued kit, the only thing I carry is a decent set of sidecutters.

              Travel heavy? If what you carry in your turn out gear takes an entire page you are carrying way too much crap in your pockets.

                I'll second that..

                All I carry is some webbing, a combo screwdriver, extrication gloves, safety glasses, a few chemlights, and two or three wedges...then I have a knife, flashlight, fire gloves and bailout bag on my truck belt. That's it...and I barely use any of that stuff. I could not imagine carrying more than that..yikes.

                          WHY as an explorer do you need "a page full of crap" in your pockets... ???
                          The only equipment you should be using as an Explorer, especially 98% of the time (unless your Post doesn't do anything), is a notepad, a pen, and maybe a flashlight as well as the extremely required PPE items (i.e. gloves and your nomex hood).
                          There is NO REASON an Explorer needs 50' of rope, wire cutters, pliers, door wedges, and other unnecessary items.
                          You need to be carrying a dictionary too... as well as your English teacher, but as the way your message sounds, you do any how... I guess that's part of the stuff you only use 2% of the time.

                            lets see.... the only things i carry are some of the rubber door stops that go on the handle, a pair of rubber gloves, and my mic for my radio. I only carry one pair of structure gloves and one hood.

                            From the sounds of it, some of you guys are carring more tools in your gear than we have on one truck alone! They wonder why FF are having back problems.

                                MacGuyver could make a nice escape harness out of that.
