    Much like the rest:

    -Long Boards (1 board/1 scoop)
    -Basket Stretcher
    -Adjustable Collars
    -Spider Straps/Speed Clips
    -Long Wooden Splints
    -Medium Burn Kit
    -Blankets
    -O2 and Trauma Pack
    -etc...

    The basket stretcher and boards take up a hell of a lot of room, but since we are in the mountains and have to carry a lot of people out of the woods, they are necessary and used regulary. We definitely need a bigger truck.

      I'll be honest... When I started this thread, I was thinking that we carried entirely too much gear on a fire engine. You guys have obviously proven me wrong. And, if that wasn't enough, we had to pull out one of our vaccum splits yesterday on a run. The guy I was working with said it was the first time he'd seen the splint come off the rig in five years... but it came in handy when we needed it.

        And ya know, composite bodies not only allow for more water storage, but also more cabinets for extrication and EMS stuff for those who wish. There's nothing like being on a call waiting for resources to show up. The beauty behind ALS engines & all the other various things people have listed on their trucks, a patient can be pretty well packaged for transport prior to the ambulance's arrival.

        Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong

          Our rescue van is pretty much fully stocked for us being a BLS first responder. Our brush truck is currently being set up as a back up to the van. It will have a med bag, oxygen, backboard and minor stuff along with the extrication tools when they come in.
