Filling the Probie’s Pockets

New twist on 'what's in your pockets?'

One of our regular followers, an officer with the Prince George’s County Fire Department, was recently notified that he would be receiving a new probationary firefighter to his shift. His new firefighter will be coming in with the minimal, standard issue equipment and no previous experience.

So, if you were this officer, what would you put in the probie’s pockets?
