    Left coat pocket = rubber ems gloves,, wood door chocks,, two small bungee cords,, rubber strap for maintaining or proping a door.

    Right coat pocket=leather gloves,, flat pry bar , ems tape,, wire cutters , leather man [also wear a leather man on my work belt , but at night that doesnt help much when your just jumping your hitch ] small screw driver for pull stations.

    left bellows pocket= 25 ft of tubular webbing .

    Right bellows pocket = hood , back up fire gloves..

    I also keep two slightly bent nails on the rubber strap for door chocking.. [ read this in the past on hear , i take a bit of a beatin for em,, but they can screw ]

    i did away with the helmet light when it did not work for me one night .. i found myself screwing around with it for longer than i should have .. i have been trying to simpify and downsize the amount of crap i carry .. the things that have been removed stay in a small tool bag on the truck , ill take this in on certain calls ..

    i wear a gemtor harness with a carabiner on the back side .. this works great for someone to grab on to you while your working .. and recently i had a piece of nomex stitched into the bottom back side of my morning prides coat ,,, this is basically a pocket that keeps 35 ft of rope that i can just reach back for .. the biner is right on top ..

    its very important to keep all the tools one would need to self rescue or breech in the right hand pocket of your coat .. you will need your left hand to maintain your scba in the event you have to swing it off for a low profile wall breech .. or any situation that may arise where you have to manipulate your scba somehow...

    its allways nice to see how simmalar we all are in terms of this topic .. then again if your on the boards and into trying to do it right than you definately pick up a quality suggestion or two...

    stay safe people..

    Coat:
    Rt chest pocket: pocket knife, safety glasses.
    Lft chest pocket (radio pocket): flashlight, 8' of webbing. I dont use the radio pocket for my radio because I use a FDNY radio strap.

    Rt pocket: hood, leatherman tool.
    Lft pocket: pair of mechanics gloves for rescue work, medical tape, window punch.

    Pants:

    Rt pocket: rt firefighting glove, assorted wedges, lineman cutters, flash light.

    Lft Pocket: lft firefighting glove, 10' of webbing tied as a strap (w/water knot), a 20' personal escape rope w/2 caribeaners.

    I have a personal escape harness worn inside of my bunker pants. They actually came w/my gear from my old dept. Chief let me keep it.

    I have a gut belt with a bailout bag w/50' of static kernmatle rope. I have 3 more beaners and a figure 8.

    I can do a couple of things with this set up.

    1) I can get my *** out in a hurry if I have to.

    2) I can make a quick harness for my partner if he does not have his own so we can both get out.

    3) If I/we can lower a victim out a window (worst case scenerio).

    4) Even though we have RIT gear. I have (if needed) enough gear to haul one or two brothers out w/the help of other FFs.

    Over the years I have carried more and less.

    Right now I have,

    Helmet- Band w/ Garrity light & spare accountablity tag

    Coat:
    On radio tabs- 1 caribiner eachside, one holds my strap & gloves the other holds the survivor light ( I have lost at least one due to the clip) Besides, they are handy to have.
    Radio pocket- ear plugs still unopened , and 1 pair of tinsnips
    R & L pockets- Idle hand space
    Inside pock.- 1 pair rubber gloves

    Pants pockets- knife on one side and leatherman on other. Also non-fire leather work gloves. maybe some chalk, hmmm that may be it.

    I'm still waiting for a 30' piece of webbing from our dept shops/supply. My old one is not trustworthy. Guess that's about it, unless you want details like old snuff cans 7 stuff. LOL
