It's a shame that anyone is getting laid off, but what does that have to do with this discussion?
It sounded as if the specialized glove collection might be incomplete.
Leatherman, bottle of 5 hour energy, webbing, (4) door stops, gloves
Very well said Mike. Been in 9 years and when I first got in all i looked for was ideas of things to carry with you. For my full time job(heavy equipment/mining) we try to have anything and everything we might need in the service truck so i went along those same lines. Fast forward 9 years.

Helmet: Nomex hood(above suspension), flashlight mounted and goggles mounted

Coat: An old Gerber tool, Res-Q wrench, some "purple gloves", folding "box cutter"

Pants: Webbing with bieners, and usually drop a bottle of water or two in the other for certain calls and side cutters.

I keep my extrication gloves hanging on a strap in my locker and my tech rescue gloves sit above in a small container. I was once told that any "fire" needed tools need to be able to be operated with fire fighting gloves on, if you can't do it proficiently don't carry it. Same for extrication stuff, etc. If you can't use it well with your gloves it is not that important to have.
folding spanner knife webbing , cable cutters, marker
gloves wedge
Air if not on a call. Me if on a call.
