How can I see how many calories I'm burning at work?

I'm a firefighter. The job is extremely physical if we're actually on a call (not at the station cleaning or something). I have a step counter on my phone but am curious to know how many calories I burn when doing things pushing a stretcher, carrying a highrise pack, moving extrication equipment, etc.. Are there any apps that can tell me this? Could something like a Fitbit tell me? Please let me know, thank you.

    A Fitbit or smart watch like an iWatch have heart rate monitors and an app that will do a decent job in calculating your caloric burn once you enter your data like age, height, gender, and weight.  They connect to apps on your smartphone.
