Hey John welcome to the best job in the world! I made a pouch out of 3 inch hose to carry my small tools. In it I carry a flashlight, a utility knife, wire cutters, 6 in 1 screwdriver, and a crescent wrecnch. I also carry a regular pocket knife hanging in my radio pocket. As far as other tools i carry I belive 2 hands 2 tools. So i carry a FUBAR the large one and a 10lb sledge on a 2 1/2 ft. handle. Make sure you have plenty of the departments flashlights with you that way you can lose theirs not yours.
thanks for the tips.any knowledge i can get i'll take.....
