You must also have a business card. In terms of equipment, we use walkie-talkies, palpation gloves, a patrol controller but also, a DATI (lone worker alarm device), which emits an alarm in the event of an attack or from failure like the loss of balance for example. The signal is directly transmitted to my team which also has one for additional help. Then we have a watch, rangers as shoes, a lamp and then we have the uniform red “FIRE SAFETY”.
