Brief Description
Basic Forcible Entry Operations
Full Description

Basic Forcible Entry Operations The day begins with a 1 1/2 – 2 hour class- room presentation. This presentation covers forcible entry size-up, tool care and maintenance, lock and door types/construction, and safety considerations. Following the classroom presentation, the entire class gathers around the forcible entry door for an overview of conventional forcible entry techniques Conventional Forcible Entry – at this station, participants each have the opportunity to force several inward and outward swinging doors. Hinge Side of the Door & Padlocks – at this station, students will each have the opportunity to pull a set of hinges from a door using our custom designed training aids. Padlocks are one of the most common locks firefighters are tasked with forcing. Power Saw Operations – The power saw is one of the most dangerous tools a firefighter can be assigned to operate. The nature of fireground operations often causes firefighters to be forced to use this tool in poorly lit conditions, on wet ground, in awkward positions, or on ladders. Through the Lock (TTL) – Through the lock forcible entry is one of the most overlooked and under-utilized forcible entry techniques. This technique is often thought to be too slow or too complex for many fireground applications.
