First and foremost, Happy New Years to all you folks.
I want to thank everyone who posted with your information. Silly for me to think that we didn't have "weapons' on the engine already....yes, we do all carry 4 D cell mags, have some real cool "master keys" and of course our brain/situational awareness.
Funny thing.....my crew and I have been taking in our mags into private homes, even at 11 in the morning for the past week....although, I did have to tell my more aggressive young firefighter to leave his axe and scabbard back on the engine when we responded to a 88 yo female with low blood pressure.....
I do live in another time zone, so fortunately, my new AR 15 and expandable batton that my wife bought me for Christmas will not have to be locked away and in hiding.....
Long live the AZ Rangers!
