CSFC Forcible Door Entry

Cold Spring Fire Company firefighters traveled to Garrison Fire Company on Tuesday night to utilize their forcible door entry simulator for a basic skills class. Firefighters learned the skills necessary to size-up and assess a locked or impeded door, look for other means of entry and as a last resort the skills needed to breakthrough a locked door using conventional firefighting tools (i.e. ax and Halligan tool).

*(Pictured are Cold Spring firefighters Peter Allen and Matt Hughes demonstrating a geared-down basic evolution of forcible entry).
