First off, thanks for being a firefighter!
I keep Lara Bars around if I need a good, quick something when my blood sugar tanks (I have had a few fun ones around the lower 50's/upper 40's that can be interesting, to say the least!) and they are good for that. But I try to use other items (like tomato juice), but they are great if I am running around away from home. And I like the fact that the ingredients are all easy to pronounce!
But for snacks, what about beef jerky, pemmican, nuts/home made trail mix, veggies, hard boiled eggs/scotch eggs--hard boiled eggs wrapped in ground sausage and fried or baked (if you have a way to keep cold), pork rinds, chunks of good pepperoni/salami/sausages (can be out for a while and still be ok). For ideas if you can't keep cold, check out some of the links for SCA camping with out coolers. Serious! They have lists of food items that can go without refrigeration. Granted, some will be the typical grain laced items, but they do have some good ideas.
