What does everyone here carry in their pockets on their turn out gear and which pockets?

The most common things that I have seen so far are

1. Linesman's pliers
2. Backup flashlight
3. Knife/seatbelt cutter
4. Combo tool, ie glass breaker/seatbelt cutter

I am new at this and wanted to take advantage of the experience here.

Thanks

Right pants: Linesmans pliers, utility/extrication gloves
Left pants: Reflective vest, folding knife, screwdriver, and a couple med. gloves.

Right coat: 12' of webbing tied in a loop.

I used to carry other stuff - personal rope, some other tools... but I decided it wasn't worth the weight/bulk.

I'll eventually get a folding spanner wrench, they can def. be useful.

Right pocket: Tubular webbing that has a carabiner sewn in it I got from a RIT class, about 25ft. of Cord, A spare carabiner, And a strap that looks like a pair of handcuffs made out of tubular webbing.
Left pocket: 4-way screwdriver, trauma shears, 2 folding spanners, Large vise grips, needle nose vise grips, a few door chocks and leather work gloves
I carry all of this in Cordura nylon pouches I made. Similar to the ones sold by the firestore.com
On my coat I have a pelican C-cell light, and wire cutters in my radio pocket with 550 cord tied to them, which is tied to the mic strap on the jacket. I tied the cord on there incase I dropped the cutters, I stll have them attached to me and not lost on the ground.
Coat pockets contain eye protection and a couple packs of earplugs

Bunker pants in left side pocket is nomex hood and a couple small door wedges, and right side pocket are fireman's gloves. I always have a leatherman with me so I don't keep one in my gear. In my POV is a Streamlight Survivor handlight mounted in a charger (provided by FD).

3rdgen40...It's true. Everything else I need is in my vehicle. Doing EMS for 20yrs has shown me that "lighter is better"! Besides, there's always a newbie around who has every piece of EMS gear you cram into their pockets. I don't even own a stethescope.

I carry a small leatherman micro, a micro mag-light and my cell phone in my pockets. A pair of trauma shears in my thigh pocket and a mini-maglight on my belt. Everything else is in the jump bag.

You can tell the rookies in EMS by the amount of stuff hanging from their belt. :supergrin:
