    We carry first aid gear in the truck,but no fire extinguisher.I guess I'll have to get my finger out and get
    one. One vital item to carry in your truck is bog paper.
    (toilet paper). Always handy. :)

    I carry me. I'm a fire extinguisher and a paramedic.

    Gusbuster, I know you are an ex CHIP so the firefighter part of you is predictable. The cops always run in first. Its the canary syndrome. Just kidding. The police are always helping us do our jobs, I just wish they would learn how to reload hose. Neat story.

    What is an Epi-Pen? What does it do for you? Take the sting away?
    I ran over a nest of ground bees last week, and got stung seven times. Those bees got down in my socks, and I thought I was going to die.
    I actually screamed, and ripped off my shoes and socks. My ankles were stinging so bad, and all I had to put on them was ice from the cooler.

    Where do I purchase an Epi-Pen? Although I don't plan on getting stung anymore, it would be nice to be prepared.

    Always carry both, plus lots of other things too, like tie down rope, log chains, oil, tools, spare parts, etc.
    My days of Boy Scout 'be prepared' have carried over into adulthood. :)
