Un-Official #AtoZChallenge: G is for Gear

With this post I am, finally, caught up…  Right??!!!  Today is letter G?!

Gear – One of the most important things for a firefighter  or paramedic…..  Without proper gear you can easily find yourself in serious trouble!!  By proper gear that means not only having the gear, but ensuring that it is always in proper working order and ready to go – every call, every time.  It should be kept clean and properly maintained.  Routine checks should be done according to department policy and standards.   It is also important that the gear be used properly.  It doesn’t do any good to have the right gear available, and in proper working order, if  your not going to use it or use it improperly.  It is also important that routine drills in the usage of your gear be done to ensure that the usage of it is second nature.

Remember Make sure your gear is “run” ready and used properly and Stay SAFE!!!

  1. This post reminded me about gear/equipment from the homeowner’s perspective. I’d love to see a post from you about what safety gear/equipment every household should have in order to stay safe and make the emergency workers’ jobs easier.

    I have a two-story house and often wonder what my options are for upstairs equipment should my downstairs be inaccessible in during a fire. I have two kids… how do I escape with them?
