Forcible entry tools and tactics have been around for ages. The need for keeping up with the ever so-changing game of forcing our way through things on the street is changing on us fast, and we have to be prepared. This interactive, forcible entry program is designed to teach the firefighter no matter the level of experience the main, basic and advanced principles of street-smart forcible entry. This program focuses on new and older, but safe, street approved methods and techniques for conventional forcible entry tactics. During this time, we will discuss and show techniques for making entry through challenging locks, added security features, steel roll gates and different types of garage doors. Because this class is an interactive class, attendees will be faced with forcible entry skill stations as well as scenario based training to hone in on the tactics learned in the program in a stress-induced environment.
