In response to those that say walk - well it's not as easy as that!. I'm on call with the local fire station and only have a couple of minutes once the pager goes off. Add that to the equipment I am carrying and you may understand that walking isn't an option, but I'd sure like to have it. I am in the genuine few percent that cannot walk.
Genuine question here : why not a bike? jump on, ride to station (which if in an urban area could well be faster than driving for a journey < 1 mile), dump bike in appropriate place, pick up kit, zoom off?
IOW what's stopping you keeping the kit at the station and having an appropriate place to drop a bike? (I'm guessing there are things stopping you doing that, but would be interested to know what they are and if there's a good way to change them).
