    We are required to carry hot shields face masks in case we get into heavy smoke.

    cal-osha and cal-fire require lots of protection...

    A couple things to add:

    Advil (ibuprofen of some kind)
    Benadryl(if you have allergies)
    and as my friend so delicately put it: Something to make you go and something to make you stop going. (anti constipation medicine and anti diarrhea medicine) Sure isn’t fun to get stuck out on the line for days and have problems.
    Write in the rain note pad in pants pocket (also keep papers in a zip lock in my pocket)
    Batteries!!!!
    space blanket
    Spare glasses/ contacts if you wear them



    Extra stuff I always have
    Sling psychrometer and RH tables
    Kestral weather meter
    GPS
    If you’re a sawyer I always have an extra file and wedges in my pack, and a bar nut or two on my key ring.

    I was'nt paying attention to the starting thread, this is stuff that I carry on a hotshot crew, although while I was on an engine we would at times carry sigs if a saw was needed, but that was rare

    I am a died in wool "engine slug" and from the South also so its torches for just about everything we do. And carrying a torch through the woods is also a big safety plus ------ if you ever fall off a cliff, I guarantee the drip loop WILL hang on something before you hit the ground.

    Medicated Gold Bond (blue bottle) Powder. It's good fer the tootsies and also in the valley, hopefully you're picking-up what I'm throwing down... LOL.

    I carry similar to what Bushwacker carries minus the fusees and diesel since we have those on the Rig. If I'm doing a burn job, then I'll carry fusees and lots of them so I can stack them and not have to bend over. We light our Drip Torches from our fusees, keeps the digits away from the dripping fuel.
    Lol Diesel is what my Multi tool is called, Sorry about that.

    You can use the Fusses to Light the Drip Torch I love the torch but they are kinda unpractical to to carry in your line gear, but man they sling do much more fire SO much faster.

    More then once, that was how I got to work the torch.
