gut wagons (support vehicles)

Postby itsnotahobby » Fri Nov 19, 2010 8:14 pm

I was wondering what guys are getting from the gut wagons that respond to your departments when you have scenes that are large enough to call it in. What types of drinks, meals or snacks are they providing?

There isn't a dedicated 'gut wagon', but on bigger incidents we usually try to round up some sandwiches or something.

Normal things include:

Gatorade, tea, coffee, hotdogs, sandwiches, all bran bars, and occasioanally timmies by times.

Personally favourites I've had:

Cold hotdog, with ketchup, and a soggy napkin stuck on the bun. Didn't even notice the napkin.

Tea, stirred with a screw driver, in the absence of stir sticks.

We get the basics. Coffeee with the flavoured Creamers and if it is one that we will be on for a bit the standard has been A&W. Health food for the Health Consciouse (sp?)
