So one of the local high school career center students and fire explorer asked if I could help him learn more about forcible entry for a skills challenge competition. He said competition, right? All in!
He has to prepare a 5-7 minute presentation and demonstration about his topic along with organizing the logistics. He is going to use our forcible entry prop and focus the presentation on the single firefighter residential door technique.
Below is a video from the first training evolution for him. We covered some specifics about different tools, door construction, and the Ol’ Gap – Set – Force task. We plan to invite others to our once a week or so horse barn forcible entry trainings until the competition in February. We’ll keep you updated with his progress.
Pass it on!
