After my first house fire, I realized right away I needed to have a good flashlight. Sure, there are flashlights on all the trucks, but as a volunteer I frequently arrive POV (personal owned vehicle). Having a reliable flashlight comes in handy when getting out of your vehicle and walking to the scene in the dark. Roadside hazards are numerous and include everything from drainage ditches and chunks of concrete, to fallen limbs, forgotten shoes, and ant hills. Trust me you really don’t want to show up on a scene dancing and ripping your boots and socks off because you walked through an ant hill.
I have both of these flashlights:
ThruNite Archer Tactical LED Flashlight, 200 Lumens
The smaller one (ThruNite) I keep in the pocket of my reflective jacket. The larger one (Ozark Trail) is with my go bag in the trunk of my car. (More about my go bag at a later time.)
This is another really great flashlight. We have this one at home and use it regularly.
J5 Tactical V1-PRO 300 Lumen Ultra Bright Flashlight
Stay safe out there!
