I've got a front plate with a star of life on it.

And sometimes I leave my stethoscope and clipboard in the jeep between shifts.

No lights or other BS.

I've got a State EMT patch sticker and 9/11 memorial sticker on the back of the car (very common around here). Then I've got a state EMS license plate on the back, and a squad plate on the front. I've got a standard scanner, and a Kenwood TM-V7A (for when I want to "ham it up").

I have a NREMT sticker that I haven't put on yet. I also carry a Radioshack scanner once in awhile.

Some gloves, hand sanitizer, box of bandaids, duct tape... used to have a wacker jump kit, but my car got broken into once at a trail head, and that was the only thing stolen. Never got around to replacing it.

I have a 1st aid kit in the trunk with my work jacket & Helmet. The back window has a NJ EMT sticker, a sticker for my hospital, a sticker for a volunteer squad that I'm no longer on (to lazy to scrape it off). The front windshield has a hospital parking sticker. There is a 16 year old halogen rotator blue light with a reflector on the dash. The light gets turned on maybe twice a year. Mostly it's to keep the PD off my case on the highway. That's why it hasn't been replaced with a new "stealth" LED setup.

I have basic first aid supplies and my bp cuff from class, and my stethoscope is in there as well so my kids can't get a hold of it.

Holy god you people are insane. I am not gonna get started on the liability of having all that crap in your POV's. What I will say is Blow past me doing anything more then 10 over the speed limit and your truck says EMT or fire on it lighted or not Your getting pulled over. I understand that you all are serious about your jobs and all that but You are more of a danger screaming down the road to some call then the marked unit running lights and sirens. Just because you are EMS/Fire Personal doesn't give you the right to break the law. Just because you are running code 3 doesn't mean that you aren't subject to the same laws that apply to civilians. If you aren't on duty then you don't need to respond and if you are on call you need to take your behind to the station and grab a marked unit. The only reason I can see to light your ride is if you approach an MVA in the middle of now where and you are the first on scene. Light your ride so that people see there is something going on and help is on scene. Other then that don't let me catch you weaving threw traffic running code 3 in your POV. On that note I will say thank you to those men and women who do respond off duty to MVA's on the side of the road. You have saved my life more then once.

But on that note my POV is my patrol car..... Yeah I had to kiss some brass to work that. I would love to show you all some pics but well its unmarked and I would like to keep it that way.......
Basics.
Laptop mount with air card. MDT mount
custom built console with all my comms. radio and scanner, blue tooth set up, nextel set up. lighted out the wahzoo. Limo tint all the way around No stickers. Shot gun mount, M4 Mount, tack vest in the back, Entry gear, 2 ammo cans 40 cal 12 gauge and, 223, 3-4 flashlights all on chargers, box of nitrile gloves some where, I don't transport so no cage, and a bunch of other crap that I never use but keep on hand.

Funny reading this thread. My car (that I drive everyday) Two small decals each for the company I work for. Again so the cops hopefully go lighter on me when pulled over. I hear the do.

I have in the car hand sanitizer, no kit of any kind. We are aloud to run blue lights but I don't have any however there is a bar in the basement to go on my full size van sometime this summer, price was right (free) and it wouldn't be over sized and look silly on my van.

Nothing else with me, might be a roll of tape in my glove box from work but nothing else. Just don't have a desire to carry a ton of stuff. Back in the day I had it all but those were years ago.


WAIT!!!!! I'm sorry I had to come back and edit... I have my gear bag in the trunk this carries my rescue bunker gear that I have to hand carry to the truck at the start of each shift. Each shift I do we load and unload our gear so if we have a rescue call we have it with us. Forgot all about it.
To me it is just like taking a briefcase to work. I didn't even think about it.

the only stuff in my truck is essentially only there becuase i dont have anywhere to put it. my jumpkit and my tech rescue gear. thats it.

ive had it all. lights, siren, radios/scanner. the works. then i grew up, realized that it was all pretty much useless, increased my personal liability, made me look foolish and out it all came.

i think whackerism is kind of a right of passage. everybody goes through it and its a good way to seperate from the professionals from the hobbyists.

the only thing that outwardly seperates my truck from any other is my national sticker that i keep forgetting to scrape off.
