The emphasis of this program will center on the use of tools to accomplish “through the lock” forcible entry. Forcible entry is key component of sound fire ground operations. However, there a many incidents that do not require brute force or have an urgency. Knowing how to get in without doing excessive damage to a homeowner of business is worth its weight in gold.
This program will cover a wide array of content. However, the emphasis will be for firefighters tasked with forcible entry duties to be fundamentally sound. Selecting the right tool for the job and understanding best practices to accomplish the goal is crucial.
After a short classroom session, the program will transition to the field where student will learn the art of through the lock forcible entry, gain hands-on experience and get to work in several scenario-based training exercises.
This can be a one day program or altered to meet local needs.
