Seems the longer you've been on the job, the less you carry. Unless you're in the wilderness, lots & lots of 4x4's, some tape & an oral airway will go a long way until the big white truck gets there.
Since I'm done with the service I work for in July, I plan on getting rid of almost everything in that bag(since I won't be responding calls in my POV for a while). Gauze, tape, oral airway, just like you said.

This thread is the catch-all for all Fire, EMS, and PD "what do you carry", for both on duty, and off duty :thumbsup:

Off duty, either a S&W Model 36, or my Glock 26.


Oh wait, I retired from the cops....


I'm a paramedic, can I borrow your pen?

I travel really heavy and keep a lot of medical and comms gear in my vehicle, but I do keep a ditch bag with bare personal necessities.

I keep this with me at all times.

Nitrile gloves

A bunch of band aids and gauze

OTC meds (diphenhydramine, ibuprofen, etc.)

Chapstick

CPR mask

Pulse OX

2 EMT sheers 

CAT Tourniquet

1000 lumen flashlight (plus 10 extra batteries)

Sharpie and pen

Wallet (with all IDs, certifications & some cash in various denominations) 

Medical, survival & electronics reference books

Utility gloves

Epi Pen(s)

IR strobe

Night Vision

Israeli bandage

Some candy bars 

A water bottle (or two)

A bunch of paperwork in a folder; SOP's, maps and report forms

A CAT5e patch cable (super useful for so many things. A real lifesaver)

Gerber multi tool

Portable radio(and extra batteries)

Amazingly, this all fits in a small (well not exactly) messenger bag. I go nowhere without it.

If I had to list all the crap I carry in my rig for SAR, K9, PPE, water rescue, extrication, bugout, etc., it would be stupid long...as I'm sure a lot of others here know what I mean...so lets go with this.

In addition to the normal wallet, keys, phone, etc., I always have on me a knife (See NCIS Gibbs' rule list)  and a Gerber 600 multi plier, which has saved my butt more times than I can remember.  And soon a Ruger LC9S Pro when I get my CCW permit in the mail.
