This tool list was found on the Rescue 2 rig at the Fresh Kills Landfill, where all debris, human remains, and evidence of the terrorist attacks were taken for inspection. "Were a big tool box", said Rescue 2 Retiree Richie Ever, explaining one of the differences between the ladder and truck companies and the rescue units.
We carry pieces of exquipment that you might not carry for three or four years. It's for a specific situation, and you might not use it, but you still have to drill with it because you don't want to forget how to use it."
