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.
Your gear 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 you don’t 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!!
