[MUSIC] Hi. This is Mike Dugan. I am a retired Captain from the New York City Fire Department. I was captain of Ladder 123. And I'm also an FDIC instructor and a member of the Fire Engineering and FDIC Advisor Board and I'm here with your Role Call Minute for today. I'm gonna talk to you today about gear and your tools at the start of the tour or a weekly check if your a volunteer firemen. Every time you go into work, the first thing you should do is get your stuff ready to respond to a run. Lay your gear out, make sure you have all your equipment. Or if you're a volunteer you go into the firehouse and you check your gear at least once a week to make that everything you need is there when the time comes for you to respond. Because if you wait until the time comes for you to respond to check your gear. Or you're running to get your gear when something's going on you could have a problem. You could be missing something. So it's always a good idea to check your stuff, get it set, get it ready, all the time. When you're ready for your tour.
