What to keep in Trucks?

We've got now 10 trucks, and I need to get a "checklist" of everything I need to start keeping in each truck.

What do y'all make sure that you have in each truck, safety wise? Fire extinguisher, first aid kit, anything else?

Duct tape, extinguishers, jumper cables, belts, basic hand tools, fluids, box of band aids, epi pen (damn bees), safety vests, tire plugs, hand air pump, pins for floating decks, whatever else will prevent crews coming to the shop in the middle of the day

Speaking from an employees perspective I would suggest:
Sunscreen (spray on)
Body wipes
Pens and lots of em!!
Gloves
Small air compressor
Straps and a come along
Plugs for tires
Trimmer string
Light tool kit for minor mechanical work
Pins for deck covers and or trailer gates
TRASH BAG!! when you have a place to put trash you are usually less likely to drop in on the floor.
Traffic cones
Duck tape (maybe reflective tape)
Clip board
Phone chargers in cigarette lighters
Business cards
1st aid kit
Cup holders (if not already installed)
Ear plugs/ headphones
Spare blades and tools to change them

About all I can think of.
